Love this Dessert - The Chocolate Mousse...........never tried it though. I had to push myself to do it, i have a fair idea how to go about it, but could never go around it.Anyways, when pantry clearing was imminent, I tried it like this.

  • Baking chocolate one bar - about 200 gms
  • 3 tbsps water
  • 1/4 cup Icing sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1.5 cups whipping cream
Step 1: chop chocolate into small chunks, add water & melt it on a double boiler. Stir and see that there are no bits left and chocolate is smooth.Remove from heat. Add icing sugar and mix well.
Step 2: Add egg yolks one at a time and stir well .
Step 3: Whip cream in a stand mixer to soft peaks and set aside
Step 4: Beat egg whites to stiff peaks
Step 5: Add egg white to the chocolate mixture and fold in slowly.Once they are well blended add a portion of the whipped cream. The cream and egg whites should be added & folded in alternately.Pour into glasses and pipe a dollop of whipped cream on it.
Step 6: Allow it to set in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.

Once set the Mousse is ready to serve .....................
