This creamy dark chocolate mousse is made with just 2 ingredients. No cream, no eggs, no butter, no sugar.. just chocolate and water!!

  • 265 grams (9.35 ounces) dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids) chopped
  • 240 grams (1 cup) water
  • Optional:
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Toppings: chopped nuts, cocoa nibs, fresh berries, whipped cream, etc.
  1. Place a large mixing bowl on top of another slightly smaller, filled with ice and cold water.
  2. In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate and water until smooth. Don’t let it boil, simply melt it.
  3. Pour the chocolate mixture into the large bowl and whisk vigorously until the mousse begins to thicken.
  4. Be careful not to over whisk as the mousse will become grainy. If it happens, remelt the chocolate mousse and start whisking all over again.
  5. Serve the dark chocolate mousse immediately or keep it, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
