Easy and Classic Chocolate Mousse

chocolate mousse served with whipped cream, selective focus,


This super easy (and low sugar) mousse can be enjoyed immediately, unlike other mousses that require setting time.

Easy Chocolate Mousse
  • 3.5 oz dark chocolate, 85 percent
  • 2–3 drops chocolate extract, optional
  • 8.8 oz. heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp. Swerve confectioners’ sweetener

Optional Decorations

  • 4.2 oz heavy cream
  • ½ Tbsp. Swerve confectioners’ sweetener
  • additional dark chocolate, grated

Break up the chocolate in a nonstick pan, and place it on a low heat until it completely melts. Add a few drops of chocolate extract (if using); set aside to cool. In a clean bowl, whip the cream and sweetener to semi-soft peaks using a hand mixer. Once the chocolate has cooled, fold it into the whipped cream until incorporated. The mixture will stiffen quickly, so spoon or pipe it immediately into your serving glasses or bowls. If you choose to make decorations, whip together the cream and sweetener to stiff peaks, and spoon or pipe them over the chocolate mousse. Grate over any chocolate you may have left to finish.

Note: These can be made ahead of time and kept covered in the fridge, but I suggest that you to remove them from the fridge about 30 minutes before eating.
