  3. Add the melted chocolate to the egg yolk mixture and beat to combine.

  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture in three portions, using circular motions from top to bottom (avoid vigorous mixing).
  6. Transfer the mousse to a large bowl or individual bowls and refrigerate for several hours.
