Easy Chocolate Mousse

Prep Time 15 mins
Setting time 1 hr



  • Combine the chocolate and butter together in a glass bowl. Set the glass bowl over a saucepan filled with water and heat the saucepan over medium heat, to indirectly melt the chocolate and butter together.
  • Meanwhile, back at the ranch, whip the cold cream in a stand mixer until fluffy and stiff. Scoop the whipped cream into a larger bowl and put the egg whites into the mixing bowl. Whip the egg whites in the stand mixer, with a pinch of sea salt, until stiff peaks form.
    And then, prepare yourself for the magic to happen.
  • Mix half of the melted chocolate into the bowl of whipped cream, gently (GENTLY!) folding to combine. Fold. Fold. Fold. Don't stir, or I'll surely throw kitchen utensils at you from my computer screen. Fold, people. Then, gently fold in the other half of the chocolate. Lastly, gently fold in the whipped egg whites. Keep folding until entirely combined.
    FOLD. Hear me now.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour to set the mousse. Garnish with fresh fruit, chopped nuts, shaved chocolate, additional whipped cream, or whatever you little heart desires.
