Creamy Chocolate Mousse

It's one of those desserts that you always find at Portuguese homes and at Portuguese restaurants, matter of fact it's the one dessert, other than Molotoff that I would always request when the family went out to eat.

It's super easy to make, it's delicious and fluffy and airy and just heaven in your mouth.

Here's how I make mine, been doing it for so many years. Thought it would be a nice dessert for our meal tonight to ring in the New Year.

Break the chocolate into small pieces, add to a microwave safe bowl, add in the tablespoon of butter and microwave for a minute. Remove and stir well until chocolate is completely melted.

Add the chocolate mixture to the egg yolk and condensed milk mixture, stir well to incorporate.

Fold in the egg whites, a little at a time until well combined.

Pour into a serving dish and top with some slivered almonds. (you can omit those if you don't like them, but I love them on the mousse)

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

That's it, nothing to it. Enjoy :)

  1. I'm definitely making this for dessert Thursday night. It looks so yummy and easy, and it's something we don't get often (only at restaurants).

  2. This is another one of those posts I’m just going to pretend that I never saw… otherwise, I would forget about my diet again! But how can I resist?! The recipe is so simple and I can enjoy it with my family especially on our weekend backyard picnics. I’m going to add whipped cream and maybe almonds on top. Thanks for this recipe!
