Simple chocolate mousse

My version of the chocolate mousse is very easy and I don't use raw eggs.
All you need is:

300ml of whipping cream
Half the batch of chocolate ganache from this recipe here.

Whisk cream until mousse state and add 2. Tbsp of icing sugar to sweeten
(adjust the amount of icing sugar to suit your taste as the ganache is quite sweet.) 
Whisk chocolate ganache until light and fluffy. 
Add the cream and ganache together and fold until combined. 
Chill the mousse in the fridge or use immediately if you are making a mousse cake. 


  1. Lovely recipe .. mandy do take a time out and visit my place :)

  2. Hi Mandy,
    Recently happened to check your blog and really enjoyed going through the lovely recipes and photos.
    I tried your chocolate mousse. My problem is that the whipped cream doesn't hold the air and fluffiness. It just goes flat after a while. How can I make it stay in the mousse state?
