Chocolate mousse cream is a true dessert star of French cuisine. Thanks to the endless variations (whole milk, bittersweet, white, flavored, etc.), the fluffy dessert simply never goes out of fashion. But how exactly does this airy delicacy succeed? I got to the bottom of it.
Where does Chocolate Mousse Cream come from?
As the melodious name already reveals: Mousse au Chocolat comes naturally from France. “Mousse” means “foam”, which describes the wonderful, fine-pored consistency of the small chocolate bomb quite well. Dessert was first mentioned in the 18th century – who served the dessert for the first time, unfortunately can not understand. So I just say thank you France.
The beginning is chocolate: the right chocolate for mousse au chocolate
The much-held opinion that you can use for cooking inferior wine and for baking or desserts like cheap chocolate, is simply wrong. Your Mousse au Chocolat can only taste as good as the chocolate you use. And that’s what the sweet dessert is all about – the full-bodied chocolate flavor.
If the chocolate has too much acid, your mousse tastes that way too. If it is too greasy, your mousse will be heavy instead of airy. So: Just give it a second, two euros more and grab your favorite chocolate.

Chocolate Mousse Cream with Dark Chocolate
Traditionally, dark chocolate with 55 – 70% cocoa content is used. If you want to refine your mousse with alcohol such as rum or cognac, then calmly fall back on the really tart chocolate with 70% cocoa content. So the mousse is really nice full-bodied.
Chocolate Mousse Cream With Milk Chocolate
If you like it sweeter, you can also use milk chocolate without any problems. But that is really only something for absolute sweet mouths. My tip: to mix sweet milk chocolate and dark chocolate in a ratio of 1: 1 .
Chocolate Mousse Cream With White Chocolate
Looks like little clouds and tastes like that: sweet and mild. Caution: White chocolate may look innocent but requires a little skill. First, it must not be too hot when melting, otherwise it will clot. But it must not be too cold either; otherwise it will clump on stirring.
Little trick: Make the lip sample before folding. Put a drop of the liquid chocolate on the lip – it feels comfortable, it has the right temperature. Here’s the recipe.
This will make your mousse chocolate airy
How does she get into the mousse, the air? Beat first, then stroke – that’s the secret recipe. Sounds strange, I know. But fortunately I mean only eggs and cream.
- First, beat up the egg yolks with sugar and a little hot water until creamy. By breaking the egg binds air. The heat stops it and can hold the air better.
- Then you gently lower the melted chocolate.
- Finally, beat up the egg whites and cream separately. Again, a lot of air comes into play.
- To avoid all the air from the ice cream and whipped cream, use a spatula and proceed as follows: “stab” in the middle of the dough, pull the scraper along the bottom to the edge of the bowl and then turn the bowl 90 degrees.
Now the dough scraper may reappear. Turn the bowl a little bit each time – prick and pull, prick and pull…
First add a small portion of egg whites and cream to make it much easier and all the ingredients will bond better.
The strong beating would make any air escape from the mousse and everything would collapse sadly.
