This chocolate mousse recipe has been in the family for generations! If you ever ask anyone in my family what dessert they want for Shabbos, you can be sure their answer is chocolate mousse!


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Separate Eggs. Beat egg whites with half of the sugar until stiff peaks form.
3. Cream egg yolks with the other half of the sugar. Melt chocolate and margarine in a double boiler or microwave, being careful to stir often. Let chocolate/margarine mixture cool a few minutes then add slowly to the yolk mixture.
4. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture very slowly until just combined.
5. Pour half the batter into a nine-inch springform pan. Bake 20–25 minutes.
6. Let cake cool completely and then add the remaining batter. Freeze and serve frozen.



1. You can bake less than half the batter or none at all, depending on your preference. We have mixed opinions in my house!

2.For a fancier look, whip one container of whipped topping and spread on top of the frozen cake. Re-freeze. Sprinkle with chocolate shavings before serving.
