Chocolate mousse made from only two ingredients? Say no more. We're all about max flavour with minimum fuss, and this recipe is sure to impress!  

Servings: 2
Preparation: 15 mins
Cooking: 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 100 g 85–90% dark chocolate, broken into pieces.
  • 3 eggs.

Directions

1. Melt the chocolate, either in a microwave or in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t directly touch the heat.

2. Separate the eggs. Lightly whisk the yolks using a fork and use an electric whisk to beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.

3. Remove the chocolate from the heat and leave to cool to room temperature. Once the chocolate has cooled a little, beat in the egg yolks, then fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture (it can take a few minutes for it to look like a chocolate mousse).

4. Pour into small cups and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes. Serve with your choice of berries and cream.
