Recipe Ingredients for Classic chocolate mousse

8 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp sugar
4 large egg yolks
4 large egg whites, divided
2 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Classic chocolate mousse

  1. In the top bowl of a double boiler, melt chocolate, whisking frequently so that no hot spots scorch the chocolate. Add in 1 tbsp sugar and whisk well. Whisk in egg yolks one at a time, waiting until each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Chocolate mixture will be fairly thick.

  2. Remove chocolate from heat.

  3. In a large bowl, beat egg whites on medium-low speed until frothy. Increase speed of mixer to high and beat egg whites to stiff peaks.

  4. Add 1/3 of egg whites to chocolate mixture and, using the electric mixer, blend them in. Add another 1/3 of egg whites and fold in. Fold in vanilla extract as well.

  5. Fold in all remaining egg whites, making sure to scrape the sides of the bowl. Fold until mousse is uniform in color and texture.

  6. Divide into 6 small dessert cups. Chill for at least 1 1/2 hours, or until ready to serve.

  7. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
