Egg free two ingredient easy chocolate mousse is rich and smooth. I think it’s easy to make because it only involves melting chocolate and water then whisking until it thickens. Check out this video and see what you think! Is this something you would try?
Easy Chocolate Mousse
You and I both know the word “easy” can be a bit overused when it comes to recipes. Something I may find easy could be a challenge for you. That can go both ways since you could have an easy recipe that I might struggle with. To me, I call this easy chocolate mousse because there are only a few ingredients and a few easy steps involved. (See, there I go using that word again…)
I put together the video above to show you how this recipe is made and what I thought of it. This is the source for this inspiration. I tried it for the first time in this video.
For anyone with egg allergies, this would be a good alternative. This mousse was light, creamy and very rich. I didn’t add sugar or anything else but I’d be happy to give it a try if you’d like to see it. Dark, unsweetened chocolate is delicious in my opinion so no sugar was needed. If you’re not accustomed to dark chocolate you might want to try adding a little sugar just like the original recipe suggests.
I’ve had requests to try using this as a frosting and to try piping it. Let me know if there is anything else you’d like to see!
I found this recipe on Pinterest and pinned it to my list of things to try on Pinterest. If you’re following this board, you can like and/ or pin recipes you’d like to see me try.

- 9.3 oz. bittersweet 70% chocolate
- 1 cup water
- (you’ll need ice and more water for the process NOT to add to the chocolate)
- up to 4 tbsp. sugar (optional)
- Prepare a medium sized bowl with ice and water with a larger bowl on top, making sure the top bowl touches the ice water.
- Place chocolate in a small pan and add water on medium heat.
- Stir once in awhile until chocolate is nearly all the way melted, with just a few small lumps left.
- Pour the melted chocolate and water into the large bowl that’s touching the ice water.
- Whisk until it begins to thicken. I prefer an electric hand mixer.
- Check the consistency periodically. It should be smooth but not grainy.
- Transfer to serving cups.
