This quick, no-bake chocolate mousse recipe is one I have up my sleeve if I want to make a tasty dessert in a short amount of time. Essentially, this mousse is whipped cream and meringue folded together with melted chocolate.


These amounts are an approximation as I tend to make this recipe by hand, eyeballing ingredients.

Amount Ingredient Notes
½ cup heavy cream
2-3 tablespoons sugar
1 egg white
1 egg yolk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate I prefer to use darker chocolate, but you can use milk chocolate here instead.
¼ cup butter (unsalted)
1 pinch salt (optional)
