To create this irresistible Strawberry Chocolate Mousse, you'll need:

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • Fresh strawberries, for garnish


Step 1: Preparing the Strawberry Puree

1. Start by washing and hulling the fresh strawberries. Then, cut them into smaller pieces.

2. Place the strawberries in a blender or food processor.

3. Add granulated sugar and lemon juice to the blender.

4. Blend the mixture until smooth and well combined, creating a vibrant strawberry puree.

5. Set the strawberry puree aside while you move on to the next step.

Step 2: Melting the Chocolate

1. In a heatproof bowl, add the chopped semi-sweet chocolate.

2. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water, ensuring that the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.

3. Gently stir the chocolate until it melts completely and becomes smooth.

4. Once melted, remove the bowl from the heat and let the chocolate cool slightly.

Step 3: Preparing the Mousse Base

1. In a separate mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form. Set it aside.

2. In another mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks until they become light and creamy.

3. Gradually pour the melted chocolate into the beaten egg yolks, whisking continuously to combine the two.

4. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture, using a spatula. Be gentle to maintain the lightness and airiness of the mousse base.

Step 4: Adding the Strawberry Puree

1. Pour the strawberry puree into the chocolate mousse base.

2. Gently fold the puree into the mixture until it is evenly incorporated, creating a beautiful swirl of strawberry goodness.

Step 5: Whipping the Egg Whites

1. In a clean mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.

2. Gradually add the powdered sugar to the beaten egg whites and continue beating until stiff peaks form.

3. Carefully fold the whipped egg whites into the strawberry chocolate mousse, incorporating them gently with a spatula. The fluffy egg whites will give the mousse a light and airy texture.

Step 6: Chilling and Serving

1. Divide the strawberry chocolate mousse among individual serving glasses or bowls.

2. Cover the glasses with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until the mousse sets and becomes firm.

3. Before serving, garnish each mousse with fresh strawberries for an extra burst of flavor and a beautiful presentation.
