Recipe: Mousse au chocolat

Mousse Au Chocolat Recipe via BetterThanRamen.net

I’m spending a week at home before heading back to DC for the summer. Fortunately for me, my mom made her amazing chocolate mousse today! The recipe is actually one that my sister got in her middle school French class four years ago, and my mom has been preparing it every since. I helped out a bit and got the recipe to share with all of you.

This chocolate mousse recipe is pretty simple and requires only a few ingredients. The texture and flavor are so incredibly rich! You will impress yourself and anyone you’re willing to share the mousse with (although it’s so good, you’ll want to keep it all to yourself)!

Mousse Au Chocolat Recipe

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Cooling Time: 4 hours

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup cream

Utensils:

  • hand mixer
  • spatula
  • saucepan
  • smaller saucepan
  • mixing bowls

Instructions:

1. First you need to melt the chocolate. I recommend using chocolate chips or breaking a chocolate bar up into small pieces. To melt the chocolate, you need to use a double boiler method. Fill the larger saucepan about halfway with water. Bring the water to a boil. Put the milk and chocolate into the smaller saucepan. Then balance the smaller saucepan over the boiling water and stir the chocolate until it is completely melted into the milk. Leave the chocolate mixture to cool at room temperature for about 10 minutes. In the meantime, continue to step 2.

2. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. In a bowl, beat the yolks and sugar with a hand mixer. After the chocolate has cooled, pour the yolk-and-sugar mix into the chocolate mixture and stir them together.

3. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until they are a firm and spongy consistency. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate. Make sure that the egg whites don’t stiffen.

4. In yet another bowl, beat the cream until it thickens.

6. Now that you have made the mousse, put it into individual serving dishes or a large serving bowl. My mom puts the mousse into glasses we got in a sundae kit. She puts raspberries and a dollop of Nutella in the bottom of a glass, then fills it with mousse and tops it off with whipped cream and a Milano cookie. Yum! *Keep the mousse in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving so it reaches the proper consistency.*

Bon appetit!
