4 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

So chocolate mousse is an epic dessert any time of the year but really does hit the spot if you’re a non-traditional Christmas dessert lover like me!!

4 simple ingredients that I bet are already in your kitchen or else already on your Christmas food shop list – eggs, milk, cream and chocolate!

Simple ingredients, a very easy cooking method and then the best bit. These chocolate mousses can be made well ahead, they will keep fresh in the fridge for 4 days.

Serves 5.

  • 1 egg
  • 150ml milk
  • 90ml cream
  • 150g 70% dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  1. Crack the egg into a large bowl and whisk lightly.
  2. Place the milk and cream into a saucepan and bring to a gentle boil.
  3. Once boiling, pour directly over the egg and whisk again until well combined.
  4. Add the chocolate to the hot contents and lightly whisk continuously until all the chocolate has melted through.
  5. Pour the chocolate mousse immediately into clean glasses, ramekins or small jars.
  6. Place in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour. Remove your chocolate mousse from the fridge for 10 minutes before serving.
  7. Top the mousse with any fresh fruit, cream, yoghurt or nuts as you like.
