Low Carb Chocolate Mousse for Those Gloomy Wednesdays

5 ingredients quick treat to put a smile on our face without turning the oven on. What else could be more divine than cream with chocolate?

There are those weeks when we barely have time to brush our teeth let alone baking something that makes the stress bearable. (Exercise won’t count here as it’s not edible.) For those hard times now we have something in our sleeves. This low carb dessert will fill the gaping hole that the busy workweek made in our baking schedule. To be honest it’s not really a baking than whipping but at the end it doesn’t really matter anyway. It’s of course a sugar free recipe that is sweetened with whatever we feel comfortable with. However this is as always, optional.

Ingredients:

  • 8.8 oz /200g Dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon Cocoa powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Honey or sweetener of choice to taste (optional as most dark chocolates are already sweetened)
  • ⅞ cup / 200ml Heavy whipping cream

How to make Chocolate mousse:

  1. Break the chocolate into pieces and place it in a small saucepan over another pan of gently simmering water.
  2. Stir until chocolate is melted.Melted-chocolate-gp-SunCakeMom
  3. Remove it from heat and leave it aside to cool a little bit. In the meantime we can prepare the eggs.
  4. Place eggs and the optional honey (or sweetener of choice) in a medium-sized bowl and beat with electric beaters until it’s light yellow color and doubled in volume. It will take about 5 minutes.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-2-SunCakeMom

  7. In a separate bowl, whip cream until thickened about 2-3 minutes.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-4-SunCakeMom
  8. Use a large wooden spoon to fold thick whipped cream into the eggs mixture really carefully.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-6-SunCakeMom Try not to break whipped cream and keep mixture light and airy.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-7-SunCakeMom
  9. Spoon mixture into 4 serving glasses and put them in the fridge to chill before serving if that’s possible.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-8-SunCakeMom
  10. Anyway, if we are lucky enough and our chocolate mousse survives for an hour in the fridge, decorate them with some extra whipped cream and chocolate topping before serving.Sugar-free-chocolate-mousse-process-9-SunCakeMom
