A low fat chocolate mousse can be done, and it's delicious too. This recipe with Maltesers is so rich and delicious, you'd have no idea this mousse contains no butter, egg yolks or cream! Taking just minutes to prep and get in the fridge it's the perfect low calorie dessert for when you're trying to be good!

Eggs whites are at the 'stiff peaks' stage when you can pull the beater out of the mixture and the egg white peak doesn't droop.

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 70g sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 50g dark chocolate, broken into squares
  • 37g Maltesers, crushed (holding half back for the top)

Method


  1. Melt the chocolate in a large heat-proof bowl over simmering water (making sure that the base of the bowl doesn't touch the water) until the chocolate has completely melted. Set aside to cool.
  2. Whisk the egg whites, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl until stiff peak have formed.
  3. Beat about a third of the egg whites into the cool chocolate mixture. You don't have to be delicate here: it's just a case of introducing the egg whites to the chocolate roughly.
  4. Tip the Maltesers into the bowl and lightly crush. Hold a few back for a garnish and fold the rest into the chocolate and egg white mixture.
  5. Next, delicately fold the second third of the egg whites into the bubbly chocolate mixture until well incorporated and it gets lighter.
  6. Finally, when all the white air pockets have gone, fold in the remaining third of egg whites into the chocolate mixture and repeat the delicate folding in technique until the mixture is a uniform texture and colour.
  7. Pour the mousse into individual cups or glasses and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  8. Scatter with the crushed Maltesers before serving.

Hi Jaz, Probably down to egg whites not being quite right, do try it again it really is a great recipie.

Edipuss

FANTASTIC!! I've tried loads of other chocolate mouse recipies but this is definately the quickest and easiest. Not so keen on the maltesers in it though, much nicer with pre soaked sour cherries!

Great dinner party pud. You'd want a good egg whisk (ie a mechanical one) if making for a lot of people but it's worth the effort: guests were fighting over the last drops, terrific recipe

Hi What sort of sugar should I be using? Caster? Granulated? Thanks

Hi Fariha, the egg whites is the part of the raw egg that isn't the yellow yolk, so just the runny 'white' is the part you need to whisk. Hope that helps!

Fariha Jannha Khatun

Hi Sarah, thanks for your comment. We have added some extra steps to the recipe as we didn't think it was very clear either. You lightly crush the Maltesers and add most of them to the chocolate and egg white mixture. The remainder is sprinkled on the top when serving. Hope this helps :)

Sarah

It says hold some maltesers back for the top... But what do you do with the other maltesers? Do you crush them and mix them in to the mixture?

Dan

How will I no when it is set and how long will it roughly take, will it b quite liquidy when I put it in the fridge, thank u

Faye

How far in advance can this be made?

goodtoknow recipes editor

Hi, No - you don't need to cook this recipe. Just melt the chocolate. Thanks, Recipes editor
