Decadent Easy Chocolate Mousse Recipe – a creamy Chocolate Mousse made with semisweet chocolate, heavy cream, egg whites and sugar.
Chocolate Mousse is among one of my favorite desserts, but it always feels so daunting to make. Candy thermometers and sieves, oh my! You won’t find any of that here. Just delicious, decadent easy chocolate mousse recipe, without a lot of effort.
I love and appreciate the process, but when you can get an incredibly creamy result with half the effort and tools, why not? So, I dumbed it down, as my mom would say, and the result is nothing short of spectacular. You’d never know the difference.
This Easy Chocolate Mousse Recipe is light, fluffy and not too sweet. I personally prefer to use semisweet chocolate, but you can use milk chocolate or bittersweet if you’d like.

Wednesday, we were anticipating dinner guests, so I made this chocolate mousse dessert on a whim. Unfortunately, they had to cancel due to a sick child and Chris was left with a refrigerator full of temptation. To be discreet, I won’t tell you how many he ate, but I will to you there are 5 left. Can you relate?
