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