There are plenty of ready-made packaged chocolate mousses out there that you can buy off the shelf in the supermarket that are very tasty.

This is a rich, quick and easy creamy chocolate mousse recipe which is perfect for a dinner party.

This French chocolate pudding can be easily made up front and refrigerated until you need it. It is great to be able to serve up dessert directly from the fridge!

The recipe uses 70% cacao chocolate which gives a delicious dark chocolate mousse.

You can of course, also add some raspberries or strawberries to give it an extra dimension and set the sweetness of the chocolate off against the tartness of the summer fruits.

The Miracle ingredient – Eggs

I still find it absolutely amazing to see what a variety of foods you can make with eggs.

Eggs are so versatile and that this delicious pudding can be produced by separating the egg whites and egg yolks and adding them in different ways to create this dish is nothing short of miraculous.

This easy mousse recipe uses raw eggs, so to be on the safe side, you need to make sure you are using pasteurized eggs.

The result is a simple chocolate mousse recipe that will have your guests drooling and asking for more (so make sure you have made enough for seconds!!).
