Chocolate Mousse


                 In the month of Ramadan, I was busy like a bee. Of course I missed the blogosphere, entirely. Now, I have to begin from the beginning all over again. To add to the no blogging month, here comes the next. I am going to India for a month's vacation, and blogging rarely comes in the list of priorities during this time. So yes! you would probably see the space stagnant for another month. So, In between, I thought of posting this one dessert which is in fact enough for a months duration of devouring. Yep! You would most probably make it again n again, even if your are not much of a chocolate lover.

    So, how do I explain this 'must have once in a while dessert', in simple terms?

               It is decadent, sinful
                              Obviously flavourful..
               Made to win, make u fall in love
                               Head over heels, LOL!!
               Creamy, silky, bittersweet
                               What more?It's chocolate.
               So get to work. Whip it up
                                You are gonna lick it up!

Actually I took the pictures a few months back when I had made it the third time. It was so creamy and had a 'melt in the mouth' kinda texture that the kids called it 'chocolate ice cream which was not that cold' :)
Here is the recipe...

Chocolate Mousse Recipe
(Recipe adapted from here)

Serves 8 

Ingredients: 1 cup chopped bittersweet chocolate 
1 stick unsalted butter 
4 egg yolks 
5 egg whites 
3 tablespoons granulated sugar 
1/2 cup chilled heavy cream 
Chopped nuts, to serve  

Directions: 1. Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler over low heat, stirring until no lumps remain. Remove from heat, transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool slightly. Whisk in egg yolks one at a time until well combined. Set aside. 

2. In a second large bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly beat in the sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and set aside to further cool. 

3. In a medium bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Once chocolate mixture is cool, fold in whipped cream until no white streaks remain. Spoon mousse into serving bowls and chill. Serve with a garnish of chopped nuts or fresh berries or a dollop of whipped cream.
