Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • Fresh berries and mint leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a heatproof bowl, melt the dark chocolate and butter together. You can do this using a microwave in 30-second intervals or a double boiler on the stovetop. Stir until smooth and let it cool slightly.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl until they become pale and creamy.
  3. Gradually pour the melted chocolate mixture into the egg yolk mixture, stirring constantly until well combined.
  4. In a clean and dry bowl, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mixture until no white streaks remain.
  6. In another bowl, whip the heavy cream until it reaches soft peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until smooth and airy.
  7. Divide the chocolate mousse into serving glasses or bowls, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until set.
  8. Garnish with fresh berries and mint leaves before serving, if desired.
