this eggless chocolate mousse recipe is completely vegetarian as it also does not use any gelatin (or gelatine).

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. few more delicious mousse recipes on blog are:

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.

    • thanks sravs for the feedback and glad to know. hope you had a great day. happy cooking.

  2. HI Dasanna

    i kept melting the chocolate and jiuce in a double boiler, but after some time, it started looking crumpled.. did i do something wrong? please help… i need to fix it urgently

    • it has been cooked too much. the chocolate just needs to be cooked till its melted.

      • Hi Dasanna
        i realized that later, but i didnt have the heart to throw away all the chocolate. I was making the dessert for my son’s birthday party.
        So what i did as an experiment is i thawed the crumpled chocolate and mixed the whipped cream and blended all of it together. It became very soft and airy. i poured it into each bowls and set it in the fridge for 3-4 hours and voila, i made lovely chocolate mousse.
        The children loved it so much and they were amazed that it was home made. they even went and told their mommies about it .. i was so delighted with my experiment.
        I cannot thank you enough. i get the courage to experiment and learn so much from you.

        • thanks for sharing this preeti. i am so happy you did this. also glad that the kids liked it. even i hate to throw away food especially baked goods or desserts, if it does not turn out well. i also keep on experimenting. what you did was really good and innovative. thanks again.

  3. Should we cool d melted chocolate completely n then add d fresh cream? because I added when it was warm n d chocolate become chunks n did not blend with cream

    • yes the chocolate has to cooled at room temperature. if you add hot or warm chocolate, then since the cream is chilled and cold, the melted chocolate will solidify. i will add this point in detail in the post.

  4. Golden syrup??? Can v make it at home or it will be available in market only? If yes then please let me know how to make golden syrup…

    • golden syrup is available in the market. i have never made it at home, but on the web i did find some recipes.

  5. Although i omitted d addition of golden syrup ..due to its unavailability here…instead added just milk….even then it turned out yumm….tnks again to u mam…☺

    • golden syrup can be easily skipped. thanks for sharing the feedback divya.

      • Can v skip golden syrup, should v have to replace it with any other ingredient , if yes, measurement pls.
        Fresh cream at room temperature?

        • you can skip golden syrup. its basically a sweetener and used for thickener. you can add powdered sugar instead. addition of sugar will depend on the type of chocolate used. if using milk chocolate which are sweet, then 1 to 2 tablespoons powdered sugar is fine, but for semi-sweet or bitter sweet you will need to add more sugar. fresh cream is chilled.

  6. Awesomely yummm recipe frm u mam….u made me try whipping d amul cream otherwise wat i knew was it can’t be whipped and voila… d work got so much easier….also being low fat….it was a guilt free indulgence…

    • thanks divya. amul cream can be whipped. but just that it takes a lot of time to whip it.

  7. Hi! I have many recipes from your blog and they turn out to be very tasty! I had a doubt regarding the golden syrup used in this recipe… What is the use of the syrup here? As i do not have the syrup, is there any suitable substitute?

    • it is basically used as a sweetener and for thickening. just add powdered sugar or icing sugar instead of golden syrup.
