Here's a super simple recipe for chocolate mousse (not a mousse out of chocolate!)
- 250gr milk chocolate
- 5 eggs
- 125gr sugar
- 125gr butter
Separate the egg whites from the yokes into different containers (larger one for the whites).
Using a cake mixer, thoroughly mix the whites (5-10minutes) for a super fluffly, firm cotton cloud-like texture.
Do the same for the yokes and sugar.
On a double boiler, melt the butter and the chocolate, mixing well.
After the butter and chocolate are well mixed together, add the yoke/sugar prep slowly and mix it.
Now, you're ready for the final step!
Gently mix the melted chocolate prep with the whites.
For the sweet tooth in you: stick your index finger into the yokes/sugar bowl and scrape it all. Yummy!
Step 5: Bon Appétit!
Let the chocolate mousse sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to harden.
See all the bubbles on the surface? Now that's the way a real chocolate mousse should be!
