I am contemplating on having a go at making this for the first time. Now i dont have the chocolate but i have chocolate syrup could i still make it. and also i have

eggs
sugar
cream
butter
and of course the chocolate syrup

could i melt the butter and heat up the chocolate syrup or by pass this step altogether just before i go ahead to make it.

To be honest, you need the chocolate. Chocolate syrup wont do it. Wait till you have some chocolate.preferably a good 70% for a nice rich mousse.

the chocolate also helps to set the mousse, if you don't have chocolate, you can use gelatine as a setting agent
