Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate Mousse
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 8 oz. chocolate
  • 1½ cups whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated (keep both yolk and egg)
  • 2 Tbsp. coffee or rum (optional)
  1. Using the double boiler method, melt the chocolate until smooth. At the same time, whip the egg whites in one bowl and the whipping cream in another- fold together after they have been whipped to form stiff peaks.
  2. Add the coffee, if desired, and the powdered sugar to the chocolate, add the egg yolks when chocolate has cooled sufficiently, working quickly to avoid scrambling the eggs.
  3. Fold the cream/egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture, mix thoroughly without over beating as that will deflate the cream and eggs. Let sit in fridge until set, at least two hours.
