These Easy Milk Chocolate Mousses require only a few ingredients and are ready in a few minutes. Silky smooth and rich, these are the perfect way to indulge!
Break the chocolate into a heat proof bowl and place in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring between each one, until melted and smooth. Add in the cream and beat vigorously until the mixture is thick and smooth. You'll start to mix and it will be runny, then the mixture will start to come together and suddenly get very thick - this is fine! Leave to one side.
Place the egg whites into a large bowl, or the bowl of your stand mixer and whisk on medium-high until you can remove the whisk and the peak holds for a few seconds (soft peak). You can do this by hand, but I would advise using an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer as it makes it so much quicker!
Once your egg whites are whisked, add in the caster sugar and whisk again on medium speed until glossy. This will take around 30 seconds.
Now, to add the chocolate mixture, I did it spoonful by spoonful, while I had the stand mixer on low. If you don't have a stand mixer, add a spoonful of the chocolate mixture, mix, stop, repeat until all the chocolate is incoporated.
Finally, add the cocoa powder and turn the mixer up to medium speed until well incorporated and you have a smooth, light and aerated mixture.
Divide the mixture between 4 small or 2 larger glasses/dishes. Place in the fridge for up to 2 hours before serving. I added some squirty cream and chocolate shavings on top to garnish.
These Easy Milk Chocolate Mousses are best eaten on the day you make them, you can make them up to 4 hours in advance. Best served chilled.
