Triple chocolate mousse
  • 1
    Place each chocolate in separate medium heatproof bowls; add 1/3 cup of cream to the dark chocolate and 2 tablespoons of cream each to the milk and white chocolates.

    Place the bowl with dark chocolate over a saucepan of simmering water. Make sure the bowl fits snugly into the saucepan, but at the same time, the bowl should not touch the water. Stir frequently, until the chocolate and cream have melted and combined well. Remove the bowl from the pan; stir in 10g butter. Repeat with milk chocolate mixture, white chocolate mixture and remaining butter.

    Beat whole eggs and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes or until pale and thick. Divide egg mixture among the bowls of warm chocolate, then use a metal spoon to fold the egg mixture into each chocolate mixture.

    Beat the remaining cream in a small bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; divide cream among bowls of chocolate mixture, fold until just combined.

    Divide dark chocolate mousse among 6 glasses (¾-cup/180ml capacity); smooth top. Top with white chocolate mousse and then milk chocolate mousse. Cover with plastic wrap, refrigerate for several hours or until firm. Remove from refrigerator 10 minutes before serving.
