Chocolate mousse

I love chocolate, and I love chocolate mousse. And I really love being able to make my own chocolate mousse. This recipe is good fun and easy to make. Hope you enjoy them!

200g dark chocolate
45g butter
3 eggs, separated
45g caster sugar


  1. Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt over hot water.
  2. Add the butter and stir until smooth.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Beat the egg yolks into the mixture, one at a time.
  5. Separately, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  6. Whisk in the caster sugar.
  7. Stir some of this egg mixture into the chocolate, then fold in the rest.
  8. Spoon into small pots or cups and chill for at least 2 hours.
This is a really yummy treat, but remember that very young babies shouldn't eat it as the eggs are not cooked (sorry Trinity!)

I also tried a bit of a different mousse by putting a digestive biscuit in the bottom of one of the pots to make a type of cheesecake. It was very tasty!
