Chocolate Mousse original is of France. One again a reason why I love French cooking!

This particular chocolate mousse recipe is a sweet mousse. Light and fluffy and not too rich and creamy.

It is also a lovely dessert to prepare a day before you expect guests. Chocolate mousse can also be flavoured like a mint, vanilla or coffee mousse. I prefer this chocolate mousse recipe just as it is.

The brandy also gives it a lovely taste - use a good quality - and you can play with the type of ramekin or glass you would like to serve the this delicate dessert in. I would recommend a lovely see-through glass on foot or a type of wine glass, even crystal would work well.

It is important that you use a good dark quality of chocolate here again, like for instance Nestle Albany or a more expensive type such as Belgium or Lindt chocolate slabs. It just make a hell of a difference than those cheap ones that is supposed to be cooking chocolate.

It is a simple recipe which is also easy to decorate with whipped cream and a nice gooseberry, raspberry, strawberry or blueberry in season or any other beautiful fruit. I guess I just love berries.

Chocolate mousse is a good idea for a romantic evening dessert or a Christmas table with individual mousses and other desserts to choose from. Or maybe a French evening to dedicate all courses to the French starting with French onion soup, Cock au VIN and Chocolate Mousse. A fun way to entertain friends to get a bit of shine on your cooking skills!
