Eggless Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Eggless Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Eggless Chocolate Mousse is a very easy, rich and delicious dessert that you can make in a jiffy.Its just whipping fresh cream and mixing it with melted chocolate...yes!! as easy as that.I have already posted a Instant Chocolate Mousse Recipe that used marshmallows which contains gelatin, so was looking for a egg less no gelatin chocolate mousse and this recipe perfectly fitted the bill. If you are looking for a easy and quick chocolate mousse recipe then this is just for you.

I made this on Valentines Day to treat my loved ones and who can say no to this chocolatey goodness...!

I referred Tarlal and halved the orginal recipe and got 3 small cups. I set it for just an hour and started clicking as lighting was fading in , I couldn't wait.

Have I mentioned before that I am crazy about brown color...Yes you heard it right! I am soo crazy of anything brown in color and used to collect all that was in brown which includes candy wrapper, pen,pencil,clips,boxes,coffee bean,nail polish and what not...My collection became huge as I started this collection during my my school days.Amma kept telling to clear all the crap but as a very responsible daughter I would never lend ears to her....But sadly one fine day she herself cleared all of them when we shifted our house.

Even now I love anything in brown and knowing this mittu once brought me a pinch of brown clay that they gave in school for playing, and that is still kept as a treasure :) Now if you are inviting me home, give something in brown I would love you for that ;) Okay?!

My Notes:

  • The traditional chocolate mousse uses only dark chocolate, But I preferred using a combination of dark and milk chocolate to achieve the color from the dark chocolate and the sweetness from the milk chocolate.
  • Use good quality cooking chocolate.
  • Double Boiler Method : Keep a pan containing water, then place another bowl inside then place the bowl containing chocolate on the second bowl.Make sure the bowl containing chocolate should not touch the surface of boiling water directly.Adding grated chocolate helps in easy melted than in big cubes.
  • You can even use dark chocolate fully but I am not sure of the sweetness so taste and add powdered sugar if you want.
  • If you use milk chocolate fully, the brown color will be light in color as you see in my Instant Chocolate Mousse.
  • I used Nilgiris Fresh Cream which was 200 gms, so measured half of it(100 gms) for this recipe.
  • I used Morde Milk Chocolate and Nilgiris Dark Choco Chips.
  • If the melted chocolate is till hot while you add whipped cream then it will curdle.
  • While whipping be very careful, don't over do as it will end up buttery.
  • If you prefer add some chopped nuts to the mousse but I wanted full chocolatey goodness so didn't add anything extra.
  • I had some crushed oreo cookies, so topped it along with grated chocolate.
  • I am really not sure whether hand whisk can be used to whip fresh cream but with what I heard from my friends, it will take time in handwhisk to achieve soft peak consistency.
  • Let it to set atleast for 3hrs.

    2. Whipping cream is different from fresh cream. The first is used for making desserts and decorations. The fresh cream is used for adding to gravies among other things.
