I am super excited to partner with my friends at Enjoy Life Foods today to bring you this amazing dessert! This week in the LCK test kitchen we tested tons and tons of variations of this chocolate mousse recipe until we reached the PERFECT consistency and flavor, and the hours of testing were SO WORTH IT.

Classic Chocolate Mousse

  • Author: Lexi

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Foods baking chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 4 egg whites, at room temperature

Instructions

  • Melt chocolate using the double boiler method.
  • Once chocolate has melted, add in cocoa powder, vanilla extract, vanilla bean, honey, espresso powder, and a pinch of sea salt and set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beet egg whites on high until you reach a stiff peak.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into beaten egg mixture. Using a stand mixer, beat the entire mixture for about 20 seconds, until chocolate is smooth and creamy looking, or just until blended (you want to avoid over mixing the egg whites).
  • Let set for at least 30 minutes in the fridge before serving.
  • Garnish with fresh berries and serve!

Notes

Before you place the chocolate mousse mixture in the fridge to set, it might look really thin. This is okay! Once it sets in the fridge, it will firm up and look creamy, airy, and delicious.

If the chocolate mixture hardens while you are beating the egg whites, place back over the double boiler until melted again.
