French Silk Chocolate Brownies Recipe – This ultra luxurious “Death By Chocolate” style brownies are covered in a fluffy chocolate mousse topping!
You guys… These French Silk Chocolate Brownies.
This is one of those moments when there are simply no words to express just how mind-blowing they are.
I even had a hard time naming them this week.
“French Silk Brownies” just doesn’t seem to do them justice. Nor does “Chocolate Mousse Brownies” or “Death by Chocolate Brownies.”
However, that is exactly what we’re dealing with here. Fudgy chocolate brownies covered in a thick layer of light silken chocolate mousse.
Really, these brownies should be called My Secret Obsession Brownies. However, we’ll go back to the term “French Silk” as it (at least) indicates an alluring pillowy texture.
Take a look at the photos and just try to imagine how the thick dark brownie layer combined with the ethereal chocolate mousse layer will effect your tastebuds, emotions, and sense of being.
Right? Are you getting it?!
Today’s French Silk Chocolate Brownies recipe is a wonder to experience.
One single bite will cause your eyes to roll back in your head, your toes to curl, senseless stammering, and feelings of euphoria.
These brownies are better than… Well, a lot of things.
You can make French Silk Chocolate Brownies with a homemade brownie recipe as the base. Yet you can also make them with your favorite boxed brownie mix, and they will still causing fainting fits.
Don’t believe me? Give them a try!

Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. (Or whatever temperature is listed on the back of the brownie mix.) Combine the brownie mix, oil, water, and 2 eggs in a mixing bowl. Whisk well. Then pour the batter into a greased 9X13 inch baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes, or as listed on packaging. Cool the brownies completely before moving on. You can place the pan in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling if needed.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a double-boiler or in the microwave. Stir in until smooth. Then allow it to cool to room temperature.
Place the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Beat on high until light and fluffy, at least 3-5 minutes. Then drizzle in the melted chocolate and beat until the mixture is even.
Scrape the bowl with a spatula and turn on high again. Add the remaining 4 eggs, one at a time, allowing the mixture to beat a solid 3 minutes after adding each egg, 12 minutes total. Stop and scrape the bowl as needed.
Spread the chocolate mousse over the top of the cooled brownies. Using a veggie peeler, shave chocolate curls over the top if desired.
Chill for 2 hours, or until ready to cut and serve.
These chocolate mousse brownies are ultra creamy and fudgy... Meaning hard to cut! 1) Either cut with them a knife, wiping the blade between cuts. 2) Or for you perfectionists, line the pan with parchment paper before baking the brownies. Once the brownies are chilled and set, lift the whole sheet of brownies out of the pan by the edges of the paper. Then use dental floss held tight between both hands to cut straight lines down through the brownies.
