3-ingredient chocolate mousse

Who would ever though such rich and decadent chocolate mousse could be made using only three ingredients? And if you don’t like orange with chocolate – two! This must be one of the simplest, but nicest chocolate desserts of all.

As I said, you can make this without the orange. But it gives such a taste… if you never had dark chocolate with orange, I strongly recommend. Of course, you can use milk chocolate as well.

Separate eggs. Chop the chocolate, place in a microwave-safe bowl and add orange juice and zest to it.

Melt chocolate in using a double boiler or in a microwave. While that melts, beat egg whites until soft peaks form and set aside.

When chocolate is melted, remove from the heat, add the yolks (one at a time) and give it a good stir until it’s smooth.

Using a spoon or a spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Have patience here, you must retain all the precious air, which makes the mousse light.

I like to pour the mousse into the little jars from my yogurt maker because they have a matching lid, but if you don’t have something like that, just pour it into bowls, cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 4 hours.

      Hi, Brooke. Hm, it’s supposed to be a gooey chocolatey mess until it’s set in the fridge (I like to leave it overnight). Did you beat the egg whites enough? Not that you can hold the egg whites bowl upside down over your head, but close. I’d suggest next time try beating the egg whites a bit more and leave it in the fridge overnight to set. Good luck! :)
