Light-as-Air Chocolate Mousse


Ingredients:


  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

  • Ice water

  • 5 egg whites

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Directions:


  1. In a small, heavy saucepan, heat the cream and chocolate over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and place the bowl into a large bowl of ice water; stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.

  2. Using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, whip the egg whites on medium speed until foamy, about 1 minute. With the machine on, gradually whisk in the sugar and beat until stiff but still moist, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Transfer the chocolate-cream mixture to the mixer bowl and whip at medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add one-quarter of the egg white mixture to the chocolate-cream mixture, folding with a rubber spatula just until no streaks remain. Fold in the remaining egg white mixture in the same manner. Divide the mousse among 8 cups of bowls and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Tip: Its not too sweet, so the chocolate really stands out.


It’s rich and creamy -  a little goes a long way.


Egg whites pack in the protein.
