Did you know that April 3rd
is “National Chocolate Mousse Day”? Well, now you do and it would be wrong to leave your mouth watering without giving you a recipe, right? Here is a delicious chocolate mousse recipe from www.marthastewart.com to make sure you have this sweet treat today.
For the Chocolate Mousse:
4 each Large Egg Yolks
4 tbsp. Sugar
2 cups Heavy Cream
8 oz. Bittersweet Chocolate, Melted
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks, 2 tbsp. sugar, and ¾ cups of the heavy cream.
Cook over medium-low heat, stirring, until mixture coats the back of a spoon, 3 to 4 minutes (do not boil).
Remove from the heat; whisk in melted chocolate and vanilla.
Strain into a bowl; chill until cool.
With an electric mixer, beat remaining 1 ¼ cups of the heavy cream with the remaining 2 tbsp. of sugar until stiff peaks form.
Stir 1/3 of whipped cream into cooled custard mixture, then gently fold in the rest with a rubber spatula.
Spoon into serving dishes.
Chill, covered for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 days.
Bring to room temperature before serving.
Have the mousse on its own or get some of your favorite fruits to dip in it.
