How many chocolate mousse recipes do you need?

I’ve got to confess that I have many chocolate mousse recipes here on the site. From one that is made with olive oil (also eggless!) to an Italian version of chocolate mousse to a regular chocolate mousse. I’ve got it all. And soon I will be sharing a paleo version as well. Just realized that is still missing and will be perfect if you want to eat eggless and diary free. But that will soon follow. For now this recipe for an eggless chocolate mousse.

The first time I made this recipe I followed the original completely but the dark chocolate in this eggless chocolate mousse is really heavy. So I decided to change the recipe a little bit and include not so dark chocolate. You can either use a good quality milk chocolate or go for a dark chocolate with a max of 50% cacao. Anymore then that and it will be heavy on the chocolate. Also the original stated it would be for 4 people. I would rather divide among 8 glasses. That is a large enough portion for this heavy dessert.

Easy eggless chocolate mousse

The recipe comes from the book Easy by Bill Granger and is – indeed – very easy. It literally takes about 20 minutes to make. Making this a perfect last minute emergency dessert. You do not need to keep it in the fridge after making. It is already the right consistency.

I did try and see what would happen if I did place it in the fridge and the result of that is that it becomes firm. Much firmer than any ordinary chocolate mousse. No less delicious though. It’s just a different texture than you’re probably used to.

Eat straight away

So while not necessary this eggless chocolate mousse is best eaten right after making.
