CHOCOLATE MOUSSE


Chocolatey elegant simple dessert , which no

one could resist. Chocolate mousse tops the list

of all mousses .This dessert is easy to make,and

tastes too delicious if prepared a day ahead

and allowed to set.( Even though it sets within

2-3 hours ).

The quality of the chocolate,says it all , so it’s

best to use good quality chocolates. I used dark

chocolate .

Now to the recipe..

INGREDIENTS

100-125 gm dark chocolate

25 gm butter ( unsalted)

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp rum /brandy ( optional)

3 egg yolks

3 egg whites

A pinch of cream of tartar

150 gm fresh cream

A pinch of salt

3-4 tbsp sugar ( powdered)

METHOD

Melt the chocolate with butter,in a double

boiler.

Add egg yolks,vanilla,brandy ( if using),salt ,

2 tbsp sugar and mix well.

Beat egg white with cream of tartar stiff .

Beat cream with the remaining 2 tbsp sugar

until stiff peaks form.

Mix in the egg whites first into the chocolate

mixture ,gently and gradually.

Next fold in the cream the same way ,gently till

no whites are seen .( Do not beat ).

Pipe into individual moulds .Top with a little

grated chocolate and serve .

This dessert can be served without cream or

any adorning. Served plain itself,was amazing .

So do try this easy recipe and post in your
