i like chocolate mousse… but without eggs. the thought of raw eggs in a regular mousse, just makes me not to have it. i do prefer eggs in cakes, but no eggs for me in a mousse. i have developed a strong dislike for raw eggs in any food product.

the reason being this that i have had umpteen times raw eggs dissolved in milk – my regular breakfast diet as a kid. and gosh… i hated it so much, especially with the raw smell of eggs. till today there are some things, i just cannot eat, coz i was forcefully fed it or forcefully made to have it. god forbid everybody these kind of eating nightmares.

keeping this unpleasant experience behind, i move on to a pleasant and lovely experience of making and savoring an eggless chocolate mousse

i have adapted this chocolate mousse recipe from tarla dalal’s the chocolate cookbook. i have only made two recipes till now from this book. the first recipe – that of chocolate walnut fudge was a disaster… the taste was very good, but the fudge was all flat… still we ate it all…

i was not sure how the second recipe – that of this eggless chocolate mousse would turn out. i was keeping my fingers crossed and was hoping that the mousse should also not fall flat… and… it did not. the mousse was well set and was a lovely dessert to have after a nice lunch and dinner.

the original mousse recipe is made from dark chocolate. i made it from milk chocolate. also, in the original recipe, rum is used. we don’t add any liquor to the food we make. hence, i have added apple juice instead of rum. you can use any fruit juice, but remember the mousse will have the flavor and taste of that fruit juice. if you do not want rum or fruit juice, then add water instead.

lets begin step by step eggless chocolate mousse recipe:

chop the chocolate and begin to melt it in a double boiler.


whilst the chocolate begins to melt, add the golden syrup and rum…

    Tried strawberry mousse and it tasted really awesome.Gonna try chocolate one today. Is there any substitute for golden syrup? As I don’t have it handy right now…

    • says

      thanks amrutha. there is no substitute for golden syrup. just add 3 to 4 tbsp of powdered sugar. you can also add honey. but add honey once the chocolate mixture cools down. honey should not be heated as it becomes toxic, when heated.

    I had 2 do we prepare this golden there a readymade option available in the market??
    Abt the chocolate, how much is 2 cups in it500gms?

    • says

      thanks rhea. golden syrup is commercially made and i don’t think can be made at home. you will get it in super stores. in cups, the chopped chocolate should be around 420 to 440 grams.

    Yum! Looks like a great recipe! I can’t eat eggs raw or cooked :( I do eat eggs sometimes (very very rare) in curries but can’t handle the smell of it in my bakes. I have stopped using them in my kitchen. This is a great recipe for me :)
