25+ Amazing Chocolate Desserts
- 5oz (150 grams) 70% cocoa dark chocolate bar
- 1 cup (240 ml) whipping cream
- 2 tablespoon icing sugar
- ⅓ cup (80 ml) whipping cream (optional)
- 1 tablespoon icing sugar
- chocolate swirls, mini eggs, sprinkles…
- Before you start make sure all your utensils are clean and dry (no a single drop of water, please).
- Chop the chocolate: using a sharp knife and a chopping board, finely chop the chocolate bar and add it to a heatproof bowl (glass or metal).
- Heat the cream: add cream and sugar to a sauce pan, place over the stop and heat until it's nearly simmering, not boiling. Keep a close eye on it because it reaches the boiling point very fast.
- Make the emulsion: as soon as the cream starts to simmer, remove from the heat and pour it slowly and gradually over the chopped chocolate while stirring. Don't pour it all in one go, and keep stirring with a spatula or a whisk until the emulsion looks smooth and glossy.
- Let it cool: place the bowl with the melted chocolate in the fridge for about 15 minutes or freeze for 10 minutes. After this time check the consistency, the surface of the mixture should look opaque, but the mixture is still soft. If it's still too runny, return to the fridge for a further 5 minutes.
- Whip: using an electric beater, whip the chocolate mixture until aerated but still soft. It should take less than 10 seconds – don't over whip. You can check its consistency any time, simply stop the electric beater and make sure the texture is fluffy but still spoonable. Over whipping makes the mousse hard.
- Serve: divide the mousse into 4 glasses. Enjoy straight away, or refrigerate for 2 days.
- Make sure the cream is cold, add it to a small clean bowl along with the sugar and beat until fluffly and aerated. Don't over whip otherwise it seizes and becomes grainy.
- Decorate each serving of mousse with a generous spoon of whipped cream and berries or mini easter eggs. Enjoy straight away, or refrigerate for 2 days, and enjoy at room temperature.
