Super Simple Chocolate Mousse

I know I made chocolate mousse only recently but this was such an easy recipe, and it was for the Cooks Club Challenge on the Taste.Com.Au forums.

Super Simple Chocolate Mousse
Serves 4-6
60gm Milk chocolate
2 eggs, separated
2T caster sugar
Grated milk chocolate, to serve

Break chocolate into small pieces, place in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water to melt. Remove from heat when melted.
Whisk the whites until stiff peaks form. Add the caster sugar and blend well.
Lightly beat the yolks into the melted chocolate.
Add the egg whites to the chocolate mixture and fold in gently, mixing well.
Pour into serving glasses/mugs and chill in refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving.
Grate some milk chocolate over top before serving.

I made a half batch, using Toblerone chocolate. It took a long time to set, and was a bit runny, probably because of the lower quantity of chocolate in 30g of Toblerone. But it was super delicious regardless. I ended up putting it in the freezer to try and firm it up a little, but forgot about it overnight. It made a lovely choc-honey ice cream that wasn't too hard to eat straight from the freezer, and I'll be using this recipe again to make ice cream!
