Total time
15 minutes
1 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Melt together the chocolate chips and butter. Let it cool to room temperature.

  2. Meantime whip the cream. Take the chilled heavy whipping cream and vanilla in a bowl. Start whipping it using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Whip it until you get stiff peaks. Do not over-mix it otherwise cream will curdle and it will turn into butter.

  3. Now check the melted chocolate is cooled to room temp. Add ⅓ part of the whipped cream. Gently fold in using a spatula. Do not mix it vigorously do it slowly and gently.

  4. Now add another third portion of it and fold it.

  5. Lastly, add the remaining ⅓ part and fold it in. You’ll notice how light and airy it is.

  6. Divide the mousse into individual serving bowls/glasses. Cover it and keep it in the refrigerator to set for about 2 hours or more.
