Can chocolate be a sin? Never - not with this tenderly melting French classic. A chocolate mousse that melts on the tongue.

How we like chocolate the most? In the midst of a light and airy mousse. Delicately melting and seductive - that's what the original tastes like. Decisive for the taste of chocolate mousse is the quality of the chocolate. Enjoy chocolate exclusively with a cocoa content of at least 70%.

600 g of chocolate and 12 egg whites - that's all you need to create a heavenly mousse au chocolat . How do we know this? From the old recipe books of our Mamé (in German: Granny). Today, we refine our chocolate foam with a dash of rum or a pinch of cinnamon. And make it our very own classic.

We agree: Our recipe for a mousse au chocolat is worth every sin! And that's why we spoon the French classic right out of the bowl.

At least as tasty as a mousse au chocolat: a chocolate cake with a liquid core.

Ingredients (4 people)

125 g dark chocolate, 175 g whipped cream, 2 eggs, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 packet vanillin sugar


1. Chop the chocolate roughly and melt in a bowl over a warm water bath. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly. Whip the cream.

2. Separate eggs. Beat the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla sugar in a metal bowl or whipping casserole over a warm bain-marie until creamy.

3. Add couverture and 2 tablespoons of whipped cream to the egg mass. Beat the egg whites until stiff.

4. Carefully stir the remaining cream with the whisk under the chocolate mixture.

5. Carefully fold in egg whites in 3-4 portions and chill for approx. 2 hours.
