You will think, I am a genius when I will tell you, that I made this Easy Chocolate Mousse with just two ingredients- chocolate and water! And after reading this genius recipe, you might want to forgive me for my chocolate addiction :).
Most of you might be aware that chocolate mousse recipes are full of eggs and high on fats from the cream and butter. But this Easy Chocolate Mousse is eggless, sugar-free and vegan too. So, it’s alright to whip this mousse and enjoy it even when you are on a diet!! I am serious, it’s guilt-free :). Both my siblings tend to go on a diet every now and then :P.

This magical chocolate mousse is also called Chocolate Chantilly. The recipe is actually based on a chemistry experiment by a famous French chemist-Herve. According to him, when chocolate and water were mixed in a precise ratio, the resulting liquid could whip up and set like a mousse. It’s more like a chemical equation! Anyone remembers Balancing equations from High school Chemistry?? :P.
The famous Chef-Heston Blumenthal of Fat Duck fame used this trick and made this recipe very popular. And since then many people have tried and raved about this Easy Chocolate Mousse.
In a nutshell,
You have to melt chocolate with water in a saucepan.
Once melted, transfer the chocolate to a chilled aluminium or steel bowl, kept in another bowl full of ice.
Cool and whisk it. It tends to thicken very quickly, so keep an eye on it or else it will turn grainy.
In case it turns grainy, don’t fret. You just need to microwave and melt it back. And then whisk whisk again!
The Easy Chocolate Mousse has the purest chocolate flavor. Rich and intense! It’s so delicate and light on the palate. You won’t feel heavy or bloated after eating this fluffy, airy and decadent mousse.
