The Best French-Style Chocolate Mousse


The Best French-Style Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients
  • 1 cup (200g) dark chocolate (at 70%), chopped
  • 3 large eggs (65g)
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp (75g) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup + 2tbsp (90g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl (or bowl of a stand mixer), whisk together the whole eggs, egg whites and sugar for 15 to 20 minutes, until reaching a nice mousse-like texture, with a firm peak when you lift the whisk.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the butter in large cubes. In a small saucepan, over a bain-marie, melt the dark chocolate. When the dark chocolate is almost all melted, add in the milk chocolate (the milk chocolate melts faster), then add in the butter pieces. Mix until silky smooth, and remove from the heat.
  3. Let cool a bit, and transfer the chocolate mixture to a large mixing bowl. Progressively fold the mousse mixture into the chocolate with a spatula, very gently. When the mousse is just incorporated, immediately transfer to a big shallow bowl. Cover with a plastic film (make sure the film does not touch the mousse) and refrigerate for at least 3 hours (preferably longer).
  4. For serving, sprinkle the mousse with some chocolate shavings, cocoa nibs, a pinch of sea salt and/or a dusting of cocoa.
