1294478790_1Chocolate lovers, this fabulous recipe is for you!

This dessert is tender, fluffy, and moist. We will use dark chocolate to add slightly bitter notes and balance the mousse.

This gorgeous chocolate dessert is ideal for a celebration. Though the recipe requires a lot of whipping but this mousse is definitely worth trying. It looks great. All guests get their own serving. In addition, you can make the dessert a day ahead.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 80 ml milk
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup of cream
  • 225 g (8 oz) dark chocolate

Cooking

Place a bowl and a wire whisk in a fridge for some time.

Melt chocolate and set aside to cool slightly.

Combine milk and sugar. Bring the mixture to boil in a  a heavy-based saucepan. Remove from heat.

Separate eggs so you have the whites in one bowl and the yolks in another. Whisk 2 yolks and pour the mixture of combined milk and sugar above.  Stir the mass continuously.

Then whip the melted chocolate until smooth.

Pour 4 whites in a heatproof bowl. Sit the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Make sure the water doesn’t touch the base of the bowl. Beat the whites for 2 minutes. Then add salt and continue to whip until they form soft peaks. Add 1/3 of whites to the chocolate mass and mix everything carefully. Then add the remaining whites.

Take a chilled bowl and wire whisk.

Pour cream there and whip until thickened (be careful not to over-beat). Add 1/3 of the cream to the prepared mass. Then add the remaining cream and stir to combine.

Spoon the prepared dessert in cups and place in a fridge for at least 2 hours. Serve the chocolate mousse chilled.

Enjoy your meal!
