This is a purist's chocolate mousse, with just enough alcohol to bring out the best in the chocolate. For best results, use a chocolate with a high cocoa content. Feel free to use whisky, Grand Marnier or anything you fancy, really, instead of the rum.
This chocolate mousse recipe can be made per person, using 30g of chocolate and one egg for each.
As a Belgian, my expectations about chocolate mousse are quite high. I was a little bit surprised by this recipe containing no cream at all, but it sounded very easy to prepare and to scale. I must admit that THIS IS A REAL GOOD BITTER CHOCOLATE MOUSSE. You must try it if you're a chocolate connoisseur. - 04 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Really quick and easy. When I made it a second time, I decided to add some cream that I had as well - don't do it, it was FAR nicer without!! - 18 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
SUPER SUPER SUPER!!! Just like my grandmother used to make. I'd forgotten how easy this was to make. - 28 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
