An easy eggless chocolate mousse recipe that you can make in 30 minutes and contains only 4 ingredients. Decadent and delicious


  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 cups cream
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar (add more if you prefer a sweeter mousse, (perhaps another 1/8 cup)
  • 5ml vanilla essence (optional)
  • For decoration: Leftover whipped cream, strawberries, or chocolate shavings


  1. Bring 1 cup of cream to a bare simmer ie. don’t let it simmer – you really just want to heat up the cream.
  2. Pour the cream over the dark chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl, leave it for a minute and then mix until well combined. This is ganache! Place in the fridge and allow to cool for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Beat up the remaining 2 cups of cream with the icing sugar until its rather stiff. It’s called “Stiff Peaks”.
  4. Combine the ganache mixture and the cream, and mix until smooth.
  5. Pour or pipe into ramekins or a serving dish of your choice. Decorate with cream and chocolate shavings or strawberries (whatever you like really!) and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.


  • This recipe will serve 4-8 depending on the size of the serving dish – ramekins will serve 8 and mugs or glasses typically will serve 4-6.
