Chocolate Mousse

by Golearnto

    Description

    Chocolate mousse uses few ingredients but the way it’s made is the key to its success.

    Method

    1. Separate the eggs, placing the whites into a roomy bowl.

    2. Break the chocolate into small pieces and put them in another roomy bowl set over a pan with a centimetre of barely simmering water.

    3. Add the butter and allow both to gently melt. Stir occasionally.

    4. In the meantime, add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and whisk to the soft peak (floppy) stage.

    5. In a separate bowl, break up the yolks. When the chocolate and butter have melted and have been allowed to cool for a couple of minutes stir in the yolks.

    6. Cut and fold in the whites in three batches until seamlessly combined.

    7. Pour into ramekins and refrigerate for a couple of hours to set.

    Tips

    Tips for a good mousse: - Use really fresh top quality free-range eggs. - Never over-heat chocolate as it will 'seize' i.e. split and turn grainy. - When whisking the whites, make sure that all the equipment is spotlessly clean and make sure that absolutely no yolk finds its way into the whites. - When combining the chocolate and meringue use a large sharp-edged metal spoon as this helps with the 'cut and fold' technique. A wooden spoon will bash out all the air you've taken so much trouble to retain.

      This dessert always goes down a treat and I have never met anyone who doesn't like it! My daughter's boyfriend jokes he is only with her for my mousse! Well I hope he is joking!

      Method

      1. Break the chocolate into squares and melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water)

      2. Remove from heat as soon as the chocolate is fully melted.

      3. Whisk the 7 egg whites until very stiff then put 1 large cupful of the whisked whites into a separate bowl.

      4. Whisk the 6 egg yolks into the melted chocolate.

      5. The slowly fold the large bowl of whisked whites in with the chocolate mixture.

      6. When the colour is even add the last bowl of whisked whites and fold in

      7. Set in fridge for 1 hour

        Description

        Easy and simple to make and great for dinnerparties.

        Method

        1. Break chocolate in a double boiler, add coffe and cook until thick cream (or use microwave).
        2. Beat in beaten egg yolks.
        3. Stir in stiffly beaten egg whites and mix well with a fork. Chill and decorate with chocolate vermicelli

        Tips

        Decorate this mousse with almost anything you like. I sometimes use fruit or cream blobs which I add via an icing piper to give it a special decorative look and feel.
