Whoa. The best chocolate mousse of your life uses only two ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes. Would be perfect for dinner parties.

Tiffany @ Savor Home said...

I made this is it is SO good, but you have to be really careful not to over-blend the chocolate. And you have to serve it immediately!

Kate said...

It's good & fun idea but it's not really chocolate mousse. I'd say something like 'chocolate frozen dessert' - which isn't as fun. But...

yum yum yum yum yum!!

Delphine said...

haven't tried this one, but the best recipe i have tasted (and made) is hands down the one with just 200g of melted chocolate (the stronger the chocolate, the better the mousse), 6 egg yolks, 6 whisked egg whites, and a large pinch of fleur de sel: simple and absolutely delicious
and no need for cream, butter or anything else!

Whoa, I expected the 2 ingredients to be chocolate and heavy cream (I've made quick mousse this way, and it's really good--just whip the cream, melt the chocolate, and fold the two together). I was shocked that the second ingredient was actually water! I have to try this.

Katie Ann said...

YUUM.

Joanna--
I tried this last night and it totally worked! I would add the optional sugar because I didn't last night and the feedback I got was that the texture and flavour was great, but it needed a bit of sugar. I used 61% Valrhona Chocolate (instead of the 70% suggested, because that's what I had) and it took a good bit of whisking to come together. But it did! And no time to set. Amazing. It really was like magic. I will definitely do it again when I have a chocolate urge (everyday)but don't necessarily feel like chomping into a giant baking chocolate bar.
Thanks for the recipe!

Joëlle said...

Wow - It worked. The conventional way (with eggs and stuff) it's so hard to get the right texture - but this was so easy! Huge hit! And very easy when your hosting a dinner party - so fast! Have you tried it Joanna?

Wow! I cannot wait to try this! I can't believe it's just chocolate and water and I love that you don't have to add sugar.

Gabriella Marie said...

Oh goodness, this looks amazing. It's probably dangerous how easy it is to make, not that it will stop me! Yum.

Maria said...

This looks pretty rich! I'd probably add loads of red berries to spice things up a bit!
