Ingredients

  • 200 grams milk or dark chocolate chopped roughly into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Place the chopped chocolate and butter into a microwave safe bowl. In 5 second increments melt the chocolate and butter, mixing between each 5 seconds. Make sure not to let the chocolate seize, so always melt the butter in 5 second increments in the microwave.
  • Once the chocolate and butter has completely melted, set aside.
  • Whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form. See notes for tips on how to whip heavy cream.
  • Gently fold in the whipped cream into the melted chocolate, until incorporated.
  • Transfer the chocolate mousse to your choice of jars or glasses.
  • Top with additional whipped cream, chocolate shavings and strawberries.
  • Chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours, until set.

Notes

The type of heavy cream makes a big difference. I suggest using whipping or heavy cream that has more than 30% fat content. The higher the fat content, the easier it’ll be to whip the cream. Chill your mixing bowl, beater and whipping cream in the fridge before whipping the cream. The colder everything is, the easier and faster it is to whip cream. Beat the heavy cream on high speed for a few minutes, until soft peaks start to form. But don’t over whip the cream either because it may become butter. It’s best to keep a close eye while beating the heavy cream.
