Desserts don’t have to be overly complicated — plenty of awesome two-ingredient options exist. We’ve previously featured biscuits , and now you can make chocolate mousse that way, too.

Instructables user tidje decided to work with two recipes and see which one tasted better. The first requires just four eggs and 100 grams of dark chocolate. The other recipe uses 250 grams of chocolate and one cup of water. The taste test revealed — unsurprisingly — that the version with eggs tasted much better.

While the water version probably has a mild health benefit, most people who tried it felt it tasted like watered-down chocolate dessert — not bad, but not quite mousse. Still, you have your options. Both are very easy to make.

  • Could the water be substituted with milk or cream? That seems to work with alot of other things, and probably still a lot healthier than eggs.

      • Well, if they’re allergic to eggs – it would be fairly unhealthy if it killed them, regardless of the protein and vitamin content.

        Why launch into an attack, when they asked a simple question ?

        • When someone says milk is “probably still a lot healthier than eggs” it’s time to pull out some facts and call bullshit where it’s due.

        • What if you’re allergice to eggs AND chocolate? You’d have to make a water only version.

          • If you’re allergic to eggs and chocolate, I’d wonder why you’d be reading this article.

  • Or just whip some cream until its stiff and combine it with a pack of Philadelphia Chocolate Frosting. Tastes amazing and takes about five minutes.

  • This recipe is either for people have have never had real chocolate mousse, or those who are missing half their taste buds.
