Chocolate mousse with mandarin

Jump to Recipe

This mousse is perfect for dinner parties as you can prepare ahead of time and keep it in the fridge ready to serve.

It uses raw eggs, and if you are concerned about Salmonella you can buy pasteurised ones.

I use raw eggs when a recipe requires them but always taking precautions.

I buy eggs in reliable supermarkets and I wash them with soap before using them.

It reduces the risk of infection by contamination.

You can find more information about using raw eggs in the recipes here:

Homemade Mayonnaise everybody can make

This chocolate mousse is easy to serve.

I often make this mousse when entertaining as it doesn't require a lot of work and can be arranged directly into the serving cups. 

Because it is very rich, you just need a small amount per person.

I use small digestive wine glasses.

Chocolate mousse for parties

It is perfect served with fruits as the sweetness of the fruits complements the bitterness of the dark chocolate.

I like to use fruits that are in season and since I am making it for Valentine I used mandarins.

It is great with any berries, kiwi or even tropical fruits like mangoes or papaya. 

To make this chocolate mousse I use my Braun hand mixer and this is my affiliate link.
