Three Layer Chocolate Mousse

5:28:00 PM





This is by far my favourite recipe to make for friends and family. The cake is fully made out of chocolate, so any chocolate lover would love this one.
The bottom is a brownie without flour, the middle layer a milky chocolate mousse and the top is a white chocolate mousse. The 3 layers are so smooth and full of flavour.


It takes some time to prepare and make it, but it is so worth it.


INGREDIENTS (SERVES 16)



For the bottom layer:
85 grams unsalted butter
200 grams bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped (or chips)
4 eggs, separated
Pinch salt
73 grams brown sugar

For the middle layer:
5 grams cocoa powder
200 grams bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped (or chips)
350ml cold heavy cream 
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Pinch salt


For the top layer:
¾ teaspoon powdered gelatin/ 2 sheets gelatin
Water for the gelatin
170 grams white chocolate, finely chopped (or chips)
350ml cold heavy cream
