Semisweet Chocolate Mousse
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling
Super tasty, light, and easy dessert. Made almost as directed. I ended up using about double the water, and I whipped about 3/4 cup cream instead of half a cup. As written this recipe makes two very small desserts, and I wanted to have a smidge larger servings and a slightly milder chocolate flavor. With 3/4 cup whipping cream and sugar to taste, I ended up with just the right amount of whipped cream left over to put a dab on each serving for garnish. This was a big hit with both hubby and me. Will definitely make again. As a side note...I had always thought that chocolate chips were probably a lesser grade of chocolate than regular baking chocolate. We were both surprised at the depth and complexity of the flavor of the chocolate in this dessert. Yum!
I love this and get so many compliments on how tasty it is. So light and not sweet at all. Perfect light dessert.
Delicious! It was so easy to make, and I loved how light and airy it is, while maintaining a rich chocolate flavor. A new family favorite!
This is SO delicious! With the light coloring people don't expect the wallop of deep chocolate flavor. The first time I made this I piped it into tiny baking cups for a holiday potluck. While it was a big hit, it was a lot of work. Now, I just make it for home so I can pig out in private. :-)
Simple, easy, and delicious!
This was so good! Very easy too!
@David12846, just use discretion. I made this for a baby shower, so I multiplied it by 5. With that in mind, I added approximately 1/4c of chocolate to my egg yolk. Just mix it, making sure the melted chocolate is incorporated into the egg yolk, and then pour that egg mix right back in to the pan with the rest of the melted chocolate. Voila! Follow the rest of the steps from there! It turned out amazing! I'll be making this same recipe again.
Maybe I'm thickheaded, but the recipe says "Stir a small amount of hot chocolate mixture into egg yolk". How much is a "small amount", and when do you add the remaining chocolate mixture?
O my gosh!! Sooo good! We all loved it and I will be making this over and over!!
I loved this recipe. It was so easy to make, and very delicious. I made it with 60% cacao chips, and it was very rich and wonderful! A little goes a long way.
