The secret to creating ultra-creamy chocolate mousse that’s also healthy is whipping and folding lightly sweetened egg whites into raspberry-spiked chocolate. This healthy chocolate mousse is perfect for a special occasion but easy enough for a weeknight. For a pretty garnish serve with a few raspberries or chocolate shavings.
Heat water in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until barely simmering.
Combine 2 egg yolks, 2 tablespoons sugar, Chambord, milk and salt in a heatproof bowl large enough to fit over the saucepan. (Save remaining yolks for another use.) Set the bowl over the barely simmering water and whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in chocolate.
Beat 4 egg whites in a separate large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form (see Tips). Add the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and vanilla and continue beating until the mixture holds stiff, shiny peaks.
Whisk one-fourth of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until smooth. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the remaining egg whites just until incorporated. Spoon the mousse into 6 dessert dishes. Refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours. Garnish with chocolate shavings, if desired.
TIPS & NOTES
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
Tips: Place chocolate chopped chocolate in a bowl and microwave on Medium for 45 seconds. Stir; continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until almost melted. Continue stirring until completely melted. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
When egg whites are beaten to “soft” peaks, the whites will still be soft enough to curl over when a beater is turned upside down. The whites are considered “stiff” peaks when they remain stiff and upright.
