Christmassy Chocolate Honey Mousse

ShortHive Christmas Honey Mousse



Dive into the festive spirit with our Christmas Chocolate Honey Mousse! Indulge in velvety chocolate honey bliss. 


  • 170g dark chocolate
  • 85g ShortHive Honey
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 310g thickened cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30 seconds. Once your chocolate is melted, leave it in the microwave to stay warm while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • In a heavy bottom sauce pan, bring the honey just to a boil and remove from the heat.
  • Place your egg yolks into a large heat proof bowl.
  • Slowly pour the hot honey into the egg yolks while whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from curdling.
  • Continue whisking the eggs until they are thick and foamy and reach the ribbon stage.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Set aside.
  • Add ⅓ of the melted chocolate to the egg/honey mixture and fold until combined.
  • Continue adding the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture in thirds until it's well combined. Be careful not to over-work the mixture and deflate all the air.
  • Add in the vanilla and fold to combine.
  • Add the whipped cream to the folded chocolate/eggs in thirds.
  • Fold with your spatula, working it around the bowl and through, folding the mousse over on itself until it comes together in a smooth evenly distributed chocolate colour. There should be no streaks of chocolate.
  • If you plan to eat the mousse as a dessert, put it into a piping bag and pipe directly into the dessert cups.

To add a Christmas touch, add some crushed candy canes on top or make a red sugar rim (as seen above!).
