This is the first time I make chocolate mousse! It’s not a chocolate mousse recipe like the ones written in cookbooks, because I just followed my intuition and not some strict rules. Anyway, I can assure you the result is AMAZING! It is also the first time I eat chocolate mousse and I am absolutely astonished by the extra-smooth texture and rich chocolate flavor. I think this will be the only way I am going to eat chocolate from now on.

This is an easy chocolate mousse recipe and with just a few steps that anyone can follow.

Chocolate Mousse
This is an easy chocolate mousse recipe you can make with absolutely no special cooking skills. It will be smooth and delicious!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 3
  • 100g semisweet chocolate, chopped ( you can also use dark chocolate 85% cocoa- it's healthier)
  • 30ml dark-brewed coffee
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 tbsp sucanat (skip this ingredient if you're using sweet chocolate)
  • 3 ml rum essence
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. Heat a saucepan one-third full with hot water, and in a bowl set on top, melt together the chocolate and coffee, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.
  2. I used a steam oven to melt the chocolate. It's easier and it is ready in 7-8 minutes.
  3. Whisk the egg yolks with 1 tbsp of sucanat and rum for about 3 minutes until the mixture is thick, like mayonnaise. (You can also use a handheld electric mixer.)
  4. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg yolks.
  5. Beat the egg whites with salt and vanilla in a separate bowl until you get a foamy texture.
  6. Fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture and whisk just until incorporated. Be careful not to over mix!
  7. Divide the mousse into serving dishes and place in bowls. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until firm. ( I wasn't that patient so I ate it after only one hour. It had a sticky, caramel-like texture which I actually loved!)
Extra ingredients:
I absolutely love spicy chocolate! If you want to taste something different add a pinch of chili powder in the chocolate mousse. It will be amazing!
Also, you can get that spicy flavor by adding ground Sichuan pepper berries. Just a pinch or two are enough to get a unique aroma.
If you want something with a seasonal flavor you can add some cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves. It will smell and taste like Christmas!

    I read about a homemade spicy chocolate recipe a few weeks ago and I said why not give it a try! It is an unusual combination but I love it 😀

  3. Looks delicious. I like the idea of adding some chili. My daughter just brown me back a chili pepper chocolate bar from Oregon.
