bittersweet chocolate, chopped
As a Belgian, my expectations about chocolate mousse are quite high. I was a little bit surprised by this recipe containing no cream at all, but it sounded very easy to prepare and to scale. I must admit that THIS IS A REAL GOOD BITTER CHOCOLATE MOUSSE. You must try it if you're a chocolate connoisseur.
The choclate tasted burned and crusty. I do not recommend this recipe at all. Sorry! 2 stars!
Really quick and easy. When I made it a second time, I decided to add some cream that I had as well - don't do it, it was FAR nicer without!!
SUPER SUPER SUPER!!! Just like my grandmother used to make. I'd forgotten how easy this was to make.
Delicious. This took about 5 minutes to prepare and it came out wonderful. For the people who said it was clumpy, you need to make sure you fold it really well. Do that and you have a treat.
This mousse was great! VERY easy to make and it was delicious. All my friends loved it. Serve them in wine glasses with a little whip cream as garnish and they look awesome too!
Very good - I used Tia Maria as the alcohol, and 72% dark chocolate. It took quite awhile to blend the egg yolk/chocolate mixture with the egg white, and there were a few little lumps of chocolate left, but it tasted great. I served it in glasses with a side serve of vanilla bean ice cream to cut through the richness - guests loved it.
To the reviewer who said her chocolate became pasty after adding her egg yolks ...this will happen if you add your eggs in hot chocolate because it cooks up the eggs.Make sure the chocolate is somewhat cool to the touch when you add the yolks and you should not have a clumpy pasty chocolate mousse.
