Mint Chocolate Mousse

I don’t know anyone who would be able to resist this. As always with my recipes, it’s easy to make and utterly delicious. I prefer using eating chocolate rather than cooking chocolate as the mousse is denser. These are a great idea for a dessert to serve when you have guests over. A delightful end to a meal and they look cute when you bring them out to guests.

Serves 4


180g milk chocolate

70ml double cream

4 egg whites

3 tablespoons caster sugar

1 teaspoon of peppermint essence

Mint leaves to garnish


Melt your chocolate. I do this with short bursts in the microwave but feel free to melt it in a bowl over a pan of hot water.

Whisk your egg whites in a separate bowl. Add your sugar and whisk until light and frothy.

Add this to your chocolate mixture bit by bit along with your mint essence.

Whisk until smooth and glossy so all the ingredients are fully combined together.

Spoon into your serving dishes and pop in the fridge to set for a few hours, over night if possible.

Serve chilled from the fridge and garnish with a mint leaf.
