Preparation

Break the chocolate into flakes with a knife. Beat the egg whites until stiff and then beat the yolks with two tablespoons of brown sugar. Whip the cream until stiff with absolutely no sugar. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, then turn off the heat and stir in the foamy yolks. Mix well, then fold in the egg whites, a tablespoon at a time, stirring in the same direction and incorporating as much air as possible. Then add the whipped cream a tablespoon at a time, as with the egg whites. Pour the mousse into single portion cups and cover with cling film, then let them rest in refrigerator for 4 hours.

Tips
Be careful with your choice of cream: make sure you buy one that is suitable for whipping.
