Christmas Recipes 2011: Chocolate Mousse 

This year's Winter is a typical Southern Californian one - it's early December, it's still green outside, and I get to walk along the beach in venice with out a sweater. That's a perk, for sure, but I do miss snow that makes our winters so much more enjoyable.

However, Christmas is soon around the corner - with or without the snow - so I'll be posting Christmas recipes during this month.

This lovely and different dessert - luscious chocolate mousse.


It's best to make the chocolate mousse on the previous day, as it has time to cool and set then. 

Chocolate mousse: 
200 g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 large organic egg, separated
1 to 2 Tbsp brandy, cognac or liqueur
200 to 250 ml (a cup) whipping cream

To make the chocolate mousse: place the chopped chocolate into a heatproof bowl and either melt in the microwave or place over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from the heat, add the alcohol and stir in the egg yolk.

Whisk the egg white until stiff foam forms, then gently fold into the chocolate mousse.

Whisk the cream until it turns thick, smooth and forms soft peaks. Fold about one third into the chocolate mixture, then gently fold in the rest of the whipped cream.

Cover the bowl with a clingfilm and place into a cold fridge for couple of hours.

To serve, take two large spoons and spoon large dollops of chocolate mousse into serving bowls.

Sincerely,

Your favorite Bootlegger,

Amanda & The Bootleg Chocolate Team.
