My valentine’s day present to AR. Nothing fancy but just a martini glass of chocolate mousse to celebrate this event. Thirty minutes before the clock strike 12 midnight, we managed to sit down and enjoy a glass of chocolate mousse together.
100 grams of dark chocolate chopped
30 grams of butter chopped
2 eggs seperated
1/2 cup of cream
1 tablespoon of icing sugar
chocolate shavings and dark cocoa powder
Melt chocolate and butter over saucepan on a low heat. Pour mixture in a bowl and add egg yolks, one at a time, beating till well combined.
Meanwhile, whip cream till soft peaks form.
Whip egg whites till soft peaks form. Sift icing sugar and whisk till thick and glossy.
Here comes the tricky bit- fold cream through chocolate mixture and then fold egg whites through. Spoon in glass/bowls and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Serve with chocolate shavings and cocoa powder.
note: Use LESS cocoa powder to dust the mousse! oh! And I’m going to try Carol’s recipe next time. Her’s look sooo silky!
