- 100g dark chocolate
- 4 egg whites
- cocoa powder and extra chocolate for decorating, optional
- In a large bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave or using a bain-marie. Allow to cool.
- Whisk the egg whites using an electric mixer until they reach stiff peaks.
- Take one-third of the egg white and mix thoroughly into the melted chocolate, to lighten it. Add the remaining egg whites and carefully fold in. Pour into individual pots and chill for at least an hour or overnight in the fridge. Dust with cocoa powder and top with grated chocolate before serving, if liked.
Top tips for making low-calorie chocolate mousse:
Try serving the chocolate mousse with fresh strawberries or raspberries to make it feel more substantial. We recommend using good-quality dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids.
