Oo that chocolate mousse sounds really good! Would you possibly be willing to share the recipe?

(Sure! It’s old and I made some changes over time, though. Here it is.)

Chocolate Mousse

- 1 bar dark chocolate, chopped (if you use Hershey’s or Nestle I will punch you in the face. Should be about 4 oz of chocolate total)

- 4 eggs, separated

- 2 tbsp heavy cream

- 2 tbsp sugar

- ½ tsp vanilla

- ¼ tsp instant espresso (optional)

- Pinch salt


In a large pot, bring an inch of water to a light simmer. Place a metal bowl on top and let it heat up. Add in the chocolate pieces, salt, vanilla, and heavy cream to the bowl and let it all melt. If you want a mocha flavor, this is a good time to add espresso powder. once everything is smooth and melted, add in your egg yolks and whisk constantly until warm. Try not to overheat or it will scramble the eggs. You just want to get it warmed up.

Meanwhile in another clean bowl, whip the egg whites until foamy. Add in your sugar little by little and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Remove your chocolate base from the heat and fold in 1/3 of the whites until well combined and there are no streaks. Do not overwork or else it will deflate and fall flat in the fridge. Repeat until all the egg whites have been folded in. 

Prepare four decorative glasses and fill generously with chocolate mousse, being careful not to break the bubbles apart. Put the mousse in the fridge and let it set in the fridge for AT LEAST 6 hours, or until firm and set. Overnight is preferred. You know the mousse is ready when it doesn’t wiggle in place. Serve with fresh berries, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings.
