Classic chocolate mousse makes any dinner feel a little more fancy. It’s great for a dinner party because it looks so pretty, everyone gets their own serving, and you can make it ahead.
This Chocolate Mousse is thick, rich, creamy, and a perfect dessert for entertaining! Not only is it pretty, everyone gets their own serving, and you can make it a day ahead of time.
I found this recipe years ago in the Bouchon cookbook by famed chef Thomas Keller. It is somewhat of a “chef-y” recipe with melting chocolate over a double boiler, whipping egg whites, and whipped cream.
But if you follow the tips I outline below, you should have success with the recipe and a beautiful, luscious chocolate mousse dessert!
