This recipe will reveal how to make a simple yet a very successful Chocolate Mousse.
200 gram bitter chocolate (notice that the chocolate must not contain any milk).
A breeze of salt.
Step 1. Melt the chocolate.
One simple way to do this is to take two pots. One of the pots should fit into the other. Fill some water in the bigger pot, insert the smaller pot in it and put the chocolate in it. Let the chocolate melt on a moderate heat and continue with step 2.
Step 2. Make ‘snow’ from the white of the six eggs.
Take a bowl, big enough to be able to work with, and extract the white of all the six eggs into it and add a breeze of salt to it. It is very important not to let any of the yellow of the eggs drop into the bowl. Use a hand mixer to make snow out of the egg white. To check if it is ready check in the bottom of the pot that there are no fluids there. Then take a spoon and take some of the snow in it and turn it upside down. If the snow sticks to it and doesn’t fall then it’s ready.
Step 3. Mix the eggs yellow with the melted chocolate.
Take another bowl and put the eggs yellow (I recommend taking only five of them) into it. Put the chocolate aside for a couple of moments to let it cool a little (you don’t want to fry the eggs yellow). And then pour the chocolate into the bowl and mix the it with the eggs yellow. Make sure to mix them well such that no egg yellow parts are left visible. The mixing part here and in the following step should be quick to achieve optimum taste.
Step 4. Mix the snow with the rest.
With a spoon take some of the snow and mix it with the rest in the other bowl. The ingredients should be mix quickly and until it has a homogeneous look with a brown color. Then take some more of the snow and mix them together. Repeat these steps until all of the snow is mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
Step 5. Cooling.
Cover the bowl with the Chocolate Mousse hermetically (Or as best as you can) and put it in the refrigerator and leave it there three hours.
After three hours it is ready. The smell is wonderful and if everything is done right it tastes great.
