Serves 4


  • Roughly chop the chocolate and melt it using a bain marie pan
  • Pour the egg yolks into a large bowl
  • Add the sugar and mix until you obtain a light and airy whitish cream
  • Add the rum
  • Blend in the Mascarpone and melted chocolate
  • Mix well until you obtain a homogenous mixture
  • Whip the egg whites
  • Blend the egg whites into the chocolate and mascarpone cream
  • Very gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mascarpone mixture until blended; this careful mixing technique retains the egg white’s consistency
  • Pour the mousse into individual bowls
  • Place the bowls in the refrigerator for three hours before serving
  • Sift powdered cocoa over the top of each bowl just before serving


Rum can be replaced by whiskey, Marsala, or even Grand Marnier. Finally, you can decorate the mousse with a small dollop of chantilly cream or a small leaf of fresh mint.
