This is such an easy decadent dessert to make and the best part about it is that it does not require much time to set in the fridge. I work on about 3 hours. :)

I forgot to set the chocolate aside and poured the cream in.. with patience and checking constantly I still achieved the right result and I'm glad I made this while the kids were at school.. I got to lick the butterfly and the bowl!
oh phew nice save Kay! Your reward was to lick the butterfly and the bowl all on your own! :)
Made this with some "use by" cheaper cream. Was easy to make and when I tasted from the spatula really good. I saw Kirrily's tip and milled the sugar first. Mine looks a little "grainy" as the cream needed extra whipping time - still tasted yummy will decorate with strawberries and offer marshmallows.
I have never made this with thickened cream (as I don't buy it) - worked every time.
Bowl licking good!
What is raw sugar please? The video looked like white sugar ?caster ?normal white sugar? Many thanks
Hi Nalini, I use raw sugar which is cane sugar which has been minimally processed. Normal white sugar or caster sugar would work too.
Do I use thickened cream or whipping cream and do I need to clean bowl in between
Felicity - use thickened cream and no need to clean the bowl in between steps. Enjoy! :)
Made this one tonight with white chocolate and it was lovely. Did not need the extra sugar.
Thank you for the lovely recipe.

Wow - I was issued a chocolate mousse challenge by a friend as she is struggling to find one she likes. This was the first one -I love the four ingredients but only had two so I substituted caramel chips for the chocolate and I used yoghurt instead of cream BUT even still it is amazing! And accidentally healthier (or less fatty) and is super yummy! Your recipe was easy to follow!
I'm pleased to hear you liked it Pam - what a great idea using yoghurt instead of cream too! :)

This is my go to Choccy Mousse recipe. It's good to watch the video, but it's very easy! I sometimes put half milk and half dark chocolate to give an extra kick of chocolate flavour. I've even tried it with White Chocolate. Refrigerate a couple hours before serving if you can. A delicious treat! Thx!
Thanks Tania - yes this is a great recipe too I find if I am short on time, as it doesn't need much time to set. :)
