The Best Easy Chocolate Mousse

Jan 07, 2021 by


This super-thick, creamy, mildly-sweet chocolate mousse is so delicious, if I hadn’t made it myself, I’d find it hard to believe it’s made with so few, simple ingredients. It’s the kind of recipe that’s so good (and easy!), I can’t imagine myself ever bothering with another chocolate mousse recipe.

All you do is melt the chocolate, whip up your aquafaba in a mixer, then combine all the ingredients in a blender before letting it set in your fridge for a few hours. Nothing fancy!!! And to think that the most plentiful ingredient in this recipe is soft tofu! I always have a hard time putting this one down. This mousse is quite mildly sweet — dark chocolate is its most predominant flavour. If you prefer a sweeter dessert, add two tablespoons of maple syrup to the step that involves the blender.

BTW, I use the word ‘best’ in the title of this post for searchability. Of course, there no such thing as a ‘best’ recipe because everyone’s preferences are different. When googling recipes, I don’t think many of you are using the keywords, “favourite chocolate mousse” (which is what this is to me), so the word ‘best’ is the most effective.

Ingredients


  • 1 1/4 c chocolate (200g) (chips or chunks)
  • 1/2 c aquafaba
  • 400g soft or silken tofu
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee powder (optional)

Best Mousse I’ve ever tasted, totally surprised I made it myself. I did have to go through 2 cans for aquafaba to get it right, but once I did- Mousse was perfect.

Delicious, but not as rich looking as the picture

It was good, but the posted picture looks like a real mousse whereas mine was super loose. Also, when blending the chocolate with the tofu my chocolate re-solidified so there were chicks if solid chocolate throughout.
Can you tell me what I did wrong??
