Chocolate MousseJanuary 3rd, 2012 | Posted by in French Recipes
This recipe reminds me my childhood and I think that a lot of French people have the same feeling since this is one of the most popular recipes in French family cooking.
You will need :
- 7 oz of dark chocolate (Lindt 50% or 70% is perfect to me)
- 1 oz of butter,
- 4 eggs
- 1 oz of granulated white sugar
1 – Melt the chocolate over a hot-water bath and add the butter into pieces.
3 – Separate egg whites from egg yolks. Add a little of lemon juice (1/8 tsp) in the egg whites and beat the egg whites until stiff. When it is firm, add the sugar in the whites and keep on beating 30 seconds.
4 – Add yolks into the melted chocolate and stir.
5 – Add the stiffly beaten egg whites into the chocolate, quarter by quarter, and stir gently from bottom to top.
6 – The Mousse is ready. Put it into individual glasses and leave it to the refrigerator for 3 hours before serving.
Bon appétit !!!!!!!!
