Chocolate Mousse Recipe

After long time without sharing any recipe, here it is a recipe I love: Chocolate Mousse.


4 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
2 tablespoons espresso or very strong coffee
1 cup cold heavy cream
3 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon sugar
1. Whip the cream to soft peaks, then refrigerate.

2. Combine the chocolate, butter, and coffee in the top of a double boiler over hot water, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from the heat and let cool until the chocolate is just slightly warmer than body temperature. If it is too cool, the mixture will seize when the other ingredients are added.

3. Once the melted chocolate has cooled slightly, whip the egg whites in a medium bowl until they are foamy and beginning to hold a shape. Sprinkle in the sugar and beat until soft peaks form.

4. When the chocolate has reached the proper temperature, stir in the yolks. Gently stir in about one-third of the whipped cream. Fold in half the whites just until incorporated, then fold in the remaining whites, and finally the remaining whipped cream.

5. Spoon the mousse into a serving bowl or individual dishes. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
