Chocolate mousse

Step by step recipe:


  1. 10 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #1Break 120 g chocolate in small pieces in a pan, and melt on very low heat or in a bain-marie.
  2. Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #2Stir with a spatula or a maryse during melting.

    Remove from heat before chocolate is totally melted, and continue stirring until it is.
  3. 3 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #3Add 60 g butter cut in small pieces, and continue to stir...
  4. Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #4... until you get a nice smooth shiny chocolate.
  5. 3 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #5Add 2 egg yolks, and continue to stir until completely mixed.
  6. 10 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #6Leave the chocolate to cool a few minutes. We do that to be sure that it will not be too hot when added to the beaten egg-whites.
  7. 5 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #7Beat 3 egg whites with the pinch of salt and ½ teaspoon lemon juice.

    Halfway through add 2 tablespoons caster sugar to make firmer and brighter white.
  8. 3 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #8Take about 2 tablespoons of beaten egg-whites and add them to the chocolate.
  9. Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #9We do that to make chocolate lighter, easier to add to the remaining egg-whites.
  10. 1 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #10Pour the "light" chocolate into the remaining beaten egg-whites.
  11. 5 min.Chocolate mousse : Photo of step #11And finish the mousse by folding in gently.

    For this, it's best to tip the bowl and to turn with the maryse from top to bottom, lifting the mixture each time.

    The goal is to succeed in mixing the egg whites into the chocolate without letting them "fall", so making a beautiful light mousse...

    Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

Remarks:

To reinforce the chocolate taste with something stronger, you can add two or three tablespoons of strong coffee to the pan after the butter.
