5 tips to make the best Mousse

  1. Temperature matters

Make sure that all the ingredients that you use that as the chocolate and the cream are at room temperature, as this will help you with 2 things, the first being easy mixing and the second that it will prevent any possible mishappenings such as the breaking of glass bowl.

  1. Chop Finely

To speed up the process of melting, try chopping the chocolate as fine as you can, this will lead the chocolate to melt fast and will save you the extra waiting time before you can finally dig into this decadent chocolate mousse.’

  1. Mix in Batches

Mixing in small batches will allow the ingredients to incorporate well, and will provide a top-notch flavour and texture profile to your mousse

  1. Use good-quality dark chocolate

Using good quality dark chocolate is also the key determiner of how your Chocolate mousse turns out to be. You can always choose between, sweetened and unsweetened dark chocolate as per your liking, but avoid using milk chocolate as it will not give you the desired result in terms of color and texture.

  1. Refrigerate

If you are a fan of cold desserts then you can let the prepared mousse into the refrigerator for up to 2-3 hours. This will give your mousse an extra thick texture and also cool it for you to enjoy.

How to store this easy 2 ingredient chocolate mousse leftover?

Although this chocolate mousse turns out to be so delicious that you will hardly have any leftovers in case you have prepared an extra batch, you can always store it by transferring it into an air-tight container and storing it in the fridge. This mousse will last you for up to 5 days and you can enjoy it anytime your sweet cravings hit.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Chocolate mousse is a soft prepared sweet dish. It normally has a smooth, light and airy texture and that is created by whipping the cream or egg whites which incorporates lots of air bubbles and make the mousse light. But depending on the way of making the texture of the mousse can vary from light and airy to thick and creamy. In this video, I’ve shared the recipe for slightly thick and creamy chocolate mousse.


  • 200 Grams / 200 Grams Semi-sweet dark chocolate
  • 400 ml / 400 ml Whipping cream


  • Chop the dark chocolate finely and transfer it into a large mixing bowl.
  • Boil water in a saucepan (large enough to fit the mixing bowl) place the mixing bowl on top of the saucepan and melt the chocolate. (This technique is known as the double boiler method).
  • Once the chocolate has melted pour 100 ml of whipping cream on top of it (make sure that cream is at room temperature and not cold, as it might lead to the bowl breaking into pieces)
  • Give this a good mix using a spatula and set it aside.
  • Next, add the leftover whipped cream into a large mixing bowl and whisk until soft peaks form.
  • Now add 2-3 tablespoons of the prepared chocolate mixture into the whipping cream and whisk it well.
  • Repeat this process until all of the chocolate is used.

Serving (Optional)

  • Transfer the prepared mousse into a piping bag and fill it into any fancy glasses of your choice.
  • Additionally, you can also, sprinkle some chocolate shreddings on top, to make it look more appealing.
  • Serve the prepared Mousse immediately, or refrigerate for 2-3 hours for an enhanced experience.

    Wondering how to make this great recipe ketogenic. So use non-sweetened dark chocolate… and something like erythritol or stevia. What would be the quantities to replicate the sweetness of this recipe? TIA

    Easy to make recipe with lovely results! I made this with my boyfriend and mom and everyone loved it. We accidentally overwhipped on the first try, but we succeeded on our second. Thanks a lot!

  4. Very delicious chocolate mousse!! Always make them for a surprise visit from my family or friends 😉
    Only thing is that, I add a small amount of semi-sweet chocolate (like 20g) to make it more sweeter for my friends but still very delicious and creamy
