How to Make the Chocolate Mousse Ice Cream Base

To make a good chocolate mousse, you need to use high-quality dark or bittersweet chocolate, as well as quality heavy cream and eggs. This is not something to skimp on, as it can affect the final texture of your mousse. It is also important to not beat the egg whites too hard, as this will cause the mousse to turn out liquidy and uncomfortably airy.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk sugar, salt, and egg yolks until mixture forms a thick paste. Add heavy cream and milk, and beat on medium-low speed until moderately frothy. Divide mixture into two separate covered containers, and refrigerate until firm.

How to Make the Chocolate Mousse Sauce

Once your ice cream base has chilled in the refrigerator, you need to make a delicious chocolate sauce. This can be done in a double boiler or in the microwave. It is important to keep the chocolate at a low temperature while stirring it so it does not seize up, which can affect the consistency of the sauce.

You will need about 3 tablespoons of milk to help it blend, but you can use more if necessary. Once it is smooth, add the ganache to one of your ice cream base containers and mix thoroughly. Return to the refrigerator until it is set, about 2 hours.

How to Make the Mousse

The secret to making a delicious mousse is folding the egg whites into the chocolate mixture gently and not beating them too hard. The consistency of the mousse is key to achieving the light and fluffy texture that we are all familiar with.

For the most creamy and velvety texture, it is important to use a high-quality chocolate that is not too bitter or too sweet. You should also avoid using a melted-down chocolate, as this can be difficult to work with and may cause the mousse to not hold its shape.

If you do not have an ice cream maker, you can make the chocolate mousse in a standard bowl, and then freeze it until set. Once it has hardened, transfer the mousse to an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

How to Serve Your Chocolate Mousse Ice Cream Ball

It is important to serve your chocolate mousse with a range of toppings that reflect the flavor of the mousse itself, such as maraschino cherries, magic shell fudge, ferrero rocher, and cotton candy. You can even top your chocolate mousse with a layer of caramel if you want.
