Chocolate Mousse

This is one of my all time dessert favorites and would be a lovely treat to share with your Valentine Sweetheart and/or family and friends :-) If appropriate, serve with a nice light, dry wine.



  • 8 (1 oz.) squares semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup water, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups whipping cream, whipped


In a double boiler, heat chocolate, 1/4 cup water and butter until the chocolate and butter are melted. Cool for 10 minutes.

In a small heavy saucepan, whisk egg yolks, sugar and remaining water. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches 320 degrees F (160 degrees C) about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in chocolate mixture.

Set saucepan in ice and stir until cooled, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Fold in whipped cream and spoon in to dessert dishes. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
