This is my attempt at Delia’s very chocolaty mousse. It's certainly one of the simplest but the nicest chocolate mousse ever.





200g dark chocolate (+70% cocoa solids)

120ml warm water

3 large eggs, separated

40g golden caster sugar




Break the chocolate and put the chocolate pieces and the warm water in a large heatproof bowl in a Bain Marie, allow the chocolate to melt slowly.


Remove  from the heat and give it a good stir until smooth and glossy, then let the chocolate to cool for 2-3 minutes before stirring in the egg yolks.  Mix well.


Whisk the egg whites to the soft-peak stage, then add in the sugar, about a third at a time.


Using a metal spoon, fold a tablespoon of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to loosen it, then carefully fold in the rest.


Divide the mousse between ramekins , cover with Clingfilm and chill for at least 2 hours.
