Chocolate Mousse Recipe

By: Tasso
  • 400g Lindt Excellence 70%
  • 400g double cream
  • 10 eggs, separated
  • Pinch salt
  • 125g sugar
  • 60ml Grand Marnier


  • Break up chocolate and gently melt over a bain marie. Set aside.
  • Mix together egg yolks and 1/3 of the sugar until pale. Mix a little melted chocolate with the egg yolks in order to warm them slightly and then add the rest of the chocolate with the yolks.
  • In a separate bowl, whip cream until ribbon stage (when mixture thickens slightly and a ribbon of cream falls from the whisk). Whisk cream into chocolate mixture until smooth.
  • In a clean, dry bowl, make a meringue with the egg whites, the remaining sugar and salt. Gently fold meringue and Grand Marnier into the chocolate mixture.
  • Pour the mousse into a clean bowl, cover it with cling film and allow to set in the fridge for about 4 hours.
