La Mousse au Chocolat

26 Nov


  • 3 eggs
  • 100 grams of chocolate
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar


  1. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.
  2. Beat the egg whites until it forms into firm peaks.
  3. Melt the chocolate (I assume you then let it cool a bit so that it’s not boiling hot).
  4. Stir in egg yolks and vanilla sugar.
  5. Carefully fold-in the egg whites (easier to do if you fold-in half the whites just until incorporated, then fold in the remaining whites).
  6. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

This recipe looks so simple, I might try it for Christmas.  Most chocolate mousse recipes require whipping cream, but this one doesn’t so I suppose it’s healthier.  I just need to get some chocolate (I hear chocolate mousse recipes work best with dark chocolate).  I’m not sure where I can get vanilla sugar though…  Would it be the same thing if I add vanilla extract to regular sugar?
