STEP 4: Fold in the whipped heavy cream into the chocolate until well combined.

Top Tip: careful not to overheat the chocolate in the microwave as it may split or burn.
Tip: Use cold heavy cream when whisking as it will be quicker and lighter
Storage: store in a bowl or cup covered with plastic wrap in the fridge until ready to serve.  Will keep in the fridge up to 4-5 days.

Recipe Variations

There are many ways you can make this 3 ingredient low carb chocolate mousse recipe, some people simply use unsweetened cocoa powder rather than chocolate but we truly don't think it's as good as this recipe.

Peanut Butter: add a 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the melted chocolate for a chocolate peanut butter mousse
Vanilla Extract: Coco Polo chocolate does have vanilla in it but if you want to heighten the flavours a little more you can add a tsp of vanilla to the recipe.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is chocolate mousse typically made of?

Traditional chocolate mousse is made with chocolate, sugar, cream, eggs and butter.  However, since this chocolate is already sweetened we did not have to add any sugar.  Nor do we add eggs or butter in this recipe.

What is the difference between Chocolate Pudding and Chocolate Mousse?

Pudding is made by heating up the milk and adding cornstarch to thicken it.  Mousse is lighter and creamier than pudding due to the whisked air from the heavy cream.
