- 3 large eggs, separated
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

- In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Set it aside.
- In another bowl, beat the egg yolks with half of the granulated sugar until the mixture becomes pale and slightly thickened. Add the vanilla extract and mix well.
- Gently fold the melted chocolate into the egg yolk mixture until well combined.
- Now, take the whipped cream and carefully fold it into the chocolate mixture until you have a uniform and fluffy mousse.
- In a clean, dry bowl, beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar and a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
- Gradually fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture until fully incorporated.
- Divide the chocolate mousse into serving glasses or bowls.
- Chill the mousse in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow it to set.
- Before serving, garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
