Quick & Easy Chocolate Mousse From Scratch


  • 3 eggs
  • 200g chocolate (use any chocolate you like - dark, milk or sugar free - block or chocolate chips)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (or caster sugar/honey or preferred sweetener)
  • 300ml cream


  • Melt the chocolate - I use the microwave but you can use whichever method you prefer.
  • Set chocolate aside to cool slightly.
  • Add eggs to the bowl of a benchtop/stand mixer and beat for about 6 minutes.
  • While this is beating add the cream to a separate bowl and use a different beater to whip the cream until peaks form.
  • Return to the stand mixer and the beaten eggs after 6 minutes or so and, with the mixer still running, add the maple syrup (or preferred sweetener) and continue to beat for another minute or so.
  • Add the chocolate to the egg mixture and gently fold through by hand until the mixture is roughly combined.
  • Then add the whipped cream and very carefully fold it through, trying not to over mix.
  • Spoon the mixture into ramekins or small bowls.
  • Place mousse in the fridge to set for several hours or overnight.
  • Enjoy!
