People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year,
but they really should be worried
about what they eat
between the New Year and Christmas.
Looking for a chocolate dessert? Look no further.
This one is to die for.
But please don’t die.
I’m sharing my recipe for the best chocolate mousse EVER.
After all. Belgium IS a country of chocolate LOvers …
You’ll need : 200g of dark chocolate ( I used a mix of very very dark and … dark)
4 tablespoons of very strong coffee.
100g of butter ( about 3/4 of a stick)
4 tablespoons of powdered sugar
4 very fresh eggs
Break the chocolate into small pieces, add the coffee and melt it. Chocolate should always be melted on very low heat, so I sit the pan in another pan with hot water at simmering point.
We call that a “bain-marie” , (Mary’s bath , LOL!)
Dice the butter and let it melt in the chocolate mixture before adding the sugar and egg yolks.
Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt.
Add the egg whites to the chocolate mixture.
Pour in a large bowl or in individual containers, and allow to set in the refrigerator.
This is CHOCOLATE HEAVEN …
