I just can’t have enough chocolate, can I? And I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one 😅 So Valentine’s over! And I made me good stuff to show me love… I’m selfish like that. But I’m sharing the recipe with you. How about that?
Amongst the many things I made is this chocolate mousse. Let’s just say it was heavenly. And you make you some too by the way. Or you need to make up to someone who has a sweet tooth? This will do it.
•13 ounces bitter or semisweet chocolate
•2 tablespoons unsalted butter
•2 large egg yolks
•1 1/2 cups heavy cream
•2 tablespoons superfine sugar
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
●In a microwave safe bowl, combine the chopped chocolate and the butter. Heat in the microwave until melted, about 35 seconds depending on your microwave, and stir to melt completely.
●Whisk in the egg yolks and set aside to cool.
●Pour the cream into a chilled bowl of a mixer and beat on medium speed until it starts to thicken.
●Add the sugar and vanilla and whisk until the cream starts to form stiff peaks.
●Carefully fold the whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture. Serve immediately or cover and chill until ready to serve.(I added some Sultans in mine. I love them😄)
And I must say Mousse au chocolat sounds really good. Ne pensez-vous pas?
