Chocolate Mousse, Eggless Chocolate Mousse recipe with step by step photos
We have used chopped chocolate for this recipe, as it melts easier and faster.
Readymade beaten whipped cream is also available in tubs in many stores, but nothing like the homemade one.
In a large bowl add the unbeaten whipped cream.
With the help of a hand-held electric beater start whisking on low speed, then increase the speed to medium-high until soft or stiff peaks form. Do not over beat the whipped cream as it can turn into butter. Keep aside.
Beaten whipped cream tastes delicious with fresh fruits.
Take the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
Add milk to it and microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. You can also melt the chocolate-milk mixture on a double boiler if you do not have a microwave.
Remove and mix well until no lumps remain.
Strain the chocolate-milk mixture using a sieve. This helps in getting a smooth mixture. Keep aside.
Add sugar to the beaten whipped cream. Beaten whipped cream is an essential ingredient in mousse making, it adds volume and smoothness to the product while chocolate or strawberry or whatever other flavouring you choose, adds depth to it.
Add the melted chocolate-milk mixture. See that it is not hot or else the cream will melt.
Add vanilla essence and honey.
Now gently fold to mix.
Pour equal quantities of the mixture into individual glasses and refrigerate for atleast 1 to 2 hours or till the mousse sets.
To serve, top each glass with ¼ cup of whipped cream and garnish with chocolate and serve chilled.
