So my two sons love chocolate mousse. But it’s not easy for us to get ones without gelatin that we almost always have to make it ourselves.
I did make some fancy chocolate mousse recipes. They’re all nice and delicious. Unfortunately, they’re not really practical at times. Because they use ‘raw’ eggs.
And to ensure the eggs are safe for us to consume, we have to pasteurise them.
Although it’s not difficult and complicated to pasteurize eggs (I promise I will share how to do it ?), at times you just want something that you can easily do and make. And of course, without compromising the taste.
When the first time I made this two-ingredient chocolate mousse, I used dark chocolate. It was soo nice. For me though. But not for my kids. They found it too chocolatey and not sweet enough ?.
So the second time I made it, I used milk chocolate only. And the boys were so happy that they finished the mousse in less than 5 minutes. Maybe because the mousse tasted creamy, sweet, and chocolatey at the same time.
But really, if you ask me, it’s not chocolatey enough for me.
Therefore, if you want to make this easy peasy chocolate mousse, ask yourself what sort of taste you want to achieve. The recipe is very forgiving. You can swap, change, or mix the chocolate and you’ll still get chocolate mousse ?.

Chocolate Mousse with two ingredients recipe
Here, I’m sharing with you 3 options of chocolate mousse that you can make according to the chocolate you use.
Dark chocolate mousse
You need 200 grams of quality dark chocolate which you chop into small pieces. Or, you can use 200 grams of dark chocolate chips or chocolate couverture.
And you’ll need 300 ml of double cream.
Semi-dark chocolate mousse
This mousse is less chocolatey than the dark version, but it’s chocolatey enough and it’s not ‘too milky’ compared to the milk chocolate mousse. This one is my favourite. As it’s less sweet but with enough chocolate in it.
For this one, you ‘ll need a mix of 100 grams dark chocolate (chips, regular, or couverture), and 100 grams of milk chocolate (chips, regular, or couverture).
Similarly, like above mousse, you’ll need 300 ml of double cream for this one too.
Milk chocolate mousse
As I mentioned above, this one is my boys’ favourites. Because it tastes creamy and milky chocolatey mousse ?. You need 200 grams of milk chocolate chips, regular, or couverture.
And you’ll need 300 ml of double cream for this one as well.
To melt the chocolate you can use a microwave. Just heat it for one minute, stir well so that the heat will be distributed evenly to every chocolate pieces. If it’s not melted enough, you can pop it into the microwave again for another 20-30 seconds only. Let it cool for a little bit.
To make the mousse, you’ll only need a whisk, either a simple hand whisk or an electric hand-held mixer, or standing mixer.
You whisk the double cream until it reaches stiff peak. And then, gently pour the melted chocolate into the cream and mix them both carefully until all blends.
I sometimes just a spatula to mix the chocolate and the cream. But you can also use the mixer or the whisk. All is good.
Once your chocolatey cream mixed thoroughly, you can spoon it into your serving glasses. In my household, we love to have it with raspberries. So I normally put some raspberries on the top before I chill the mousse in the fridge/ refrigerator.
You can enjoy the mousse however you like. You can put your favourite berries like strawberries, blackberries, or you can put other fruits like mangoes or kiwis? Feel free to put whipping cream on the top if you like, so it’ll be a proper indulgence for you. Just make sure you do a bit of exercise after your chocolate mousse ?.
