Chocolate mousse recipes please

Here's a recipe I have used once or twice:

300 Ml Cream
250 G Chopped Dark Chocolate
3 Egg Yolks
3 Tablespoons Liqueur (cointreau or Kahlua), or vanilla or peppermint essence or strong sweetened espresso coffee
See Note

Heat cream until just about to boil.
Throw everything in a blender and run machine until the racket stops.
Pour into little espresso coffee cups or liqueur glasses and chill at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

Variations can be made using white chocolate or milk chocolate and even chocolate peppermint creams or caramello chocolate.

Try beating the egg whites and folding in before pouring into pretty glasses. Will probably make more than 6 small servings

Chocolate Mousse

175g top quality dark chocolate, at least 70% cocoa solids.
1 tab brandy or rum or strong coffee
30g unsalted butter
4 eggs, separated

In a bowl over simmering water melt the chocolate in the brandy. Stir until completely smooth and cool for 10 minutes. Stir again, and add butter, stir until amalgamated. Stir in egg yolks until complete amalgamated. Whisk egg whites to soft peaks (not stiff and dry), fold in a third until completely amalgamated. Very gently fold in remaining egg white until just combined.

Pour into glasses or ramekins and chill several hours until set. Improves with at least 24 hours chilling and will keep at least 5 days in the fridge.

The best kind are made of eggs, cream, whittakers chocolate (with high percentage cocoa). I haven't got my recipe on hand, but if you look online, you will find a similar one. Don't need to muck about with gelatine or cocoa. The following recipe is almost identical to mine, its gorgeous.

This is the only recipe I use- easy and delicious.

"I have never included cream in a chocolate mousse. I use Elizabeth David's recipe:

175g top quality dark chocolate, at least 70% cocoa solids.
1 tab brandy or rum or strong coffee
30g unsalted butter
4 eggs, separated

In a bowl over simmering water melt the chocolate in the brandy. Stir until completely smooth and cool for 10 minutes. Stir again, and add butter, stir until amalgamated. Stir in egg yolks until complete amalgamated. Whisk egg whites to soft peaks (not stiff and dry), fold in a third until completely amalgamated. Very gently fold in remaining egg white until just combined.

Pour into glasses or ramekins and chill several hours until set. Improves with at least 24 hours chilling and will keep at least 5 days in the fridge.

An orange variation is very good - use orange juice or Grand Marnier instead of the brandy, add a grated zest of an orange.
