Mousse au Chocolate

Ingredients (for five people)

  • 200 gr dark chocolate
  • 2 fresh eggs
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 250 ml cream
  • 1/4 Tsp mix of cardamom powder, cinnamon powder, clove powder
  • 1/4 Tsp spice mixture called “Alles Liebe” from Sonnentor
  • some salt
  • optional: 2-3 Tbsp cognac, whiskey, cherry brandy or something similar

Instruction

  1. melt the chocolate with a little water, when done add the optional alcohol to it
  2. while melting the chocolate, separate the two eggs. Whip the egg white with some salt till very stiff. Put it into the fridge.
  3. whip the cream just a little more than for direct use. Attention, don’t make clotted cream or butter! Put the whipped cream into the fridge.
  4. beat the two egg yolks with the sugar, till the colour gets lighter
  5. add slowly the melted chocolate to the egg yolk sugar mixture. The chocolate shouldn’t be too hot, otherwise the egg will coagulate
  6. add the spices and the whipped cream and mix well
  7. add slowly the whipped egg white.  Stir it gentle under but not too hard, otherwise the mousse won’t be fluffy.
  8. give the mousse in a nice a bowl or in five one portion glasses and put the mousse for at least 4 hours into the fridge before serving

Suggestion

  • if the chocolate is not totally melted and there are still some real small pieces, never mind, it makes the mousse more interesting
  • for decoration add some of the spice “Alles Liebe” over it
  • you can prepare the mousse au chocolate easily a day in advance, so when you have guests for dinner, no stress with the dessert
  • serve the mousse with fruits, strawberry and oranges go very well
