Chocolate Mousse (to die for!)

Mar 22

A simple, elegant, and scrumptious chocolate mousse that is both light and rich. This sensational dessert is a feast for the senses as it transports you to pure dessert bliss. Every single spoonful explodes with rich chocolate madness, melting in your mouth and making you crave for what could be the next closest thing to heaven mankind will ever know. But the best part is the simplicity of its preparation. Let me share a recipe demonstrated by Chef Joey Prats, Culinary Institute of Aristocrat (CIA) Program Development Consultant.

Yield: Serves sixteen

Ingredients:

For the Mousse:

500 grams bittersweet chocolate couverture

300 grams heavy whipping cream

5 grams instant coffee powder dissolved in

10 grams hot water

800 grams heavy whipping cream, chilled

For the Assembly:

500 grams whipping cream, chilled

50 grams confectioner’s sugar, sifted

Bittersweet chocolate couverture shavings


Bittersweet chocolate couverture can be bought locally at Chocolate Lovers


Use genuine whipping cream like Elle & Vire not All purpose cream

1. Chop the bittersweet chocolate couverture and place in a large bowl.

2. Combine heavy whipping cream and coffee solution in a heavy saucepan and bring to boiling point over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

3. Pour hot cream mixture over chopped chocolate in a bowl. Allow to stand for a minute or two, then stir mixture until smooth and glossy. Cool to room temperature.

Even Nina and Eric thinks so:

Why not try it for yourself?
