Essentials recipe Chocolate mousse + cherries = a tempting chocolate dessert in a glass! Perfect for dinner parties and for sharing


  • 2 x 150g bittersweet dark chocolate with whole cherries
  • 2 egg whites
  • 275ml double cream
  • 4tbsp chocolate sauce

Don't bother melting chocolate over a pan of simmering water. Just break it up and put it in the microwave on a low or defrost setting for a few minutes, stirring halfway through.

Gordon Ramsay, celebrity chef


  1. Gently melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Allow to cool.
  2. Whisk the egg whites and double cream in separate bowls until they form stiff peaks.
  3. Fold the chocolate into the egg whites and then into the double cream.
  4. Spoon nearly all the mixture into four glasses and then top with chocolate sauce. Top with remaining mousse and chill until set.
