Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Chocolate Mousse is one of those decadent desserts that most people love.

6 ounces Bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
7 large egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Place the chocolate in a large bowl and set aside.

Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and salt together in a bowl until smooth. Bring the cream and milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Remove the pan from the heat and slowly whisk about 1 cup of the cream mixture into the yolks. Slowly whisk the yolks back into the cream mixture.

Return the pan to low heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly, just enough to coat the back of a spoon with a thin film for about 7 - 9 minutes.

Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer into the bowl with the chocolate and let stand for 2 minutes. Slowly whisk the mixture until thoroughly combined.

Stir in the vanilla and then divide evenly among 6 6-ounce ramekins.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours. Serve cold with a dollop of clotted cream. There is no point in counting calories here!
