One of my favorite products to use in desserts is chocolate. As I am originally from Belgium, I have worked with this product for years and years.
This recipe of Belgian Chocolate mousse only consists of 4 ingredients and a splash of milk (depending on the bitternes of the chocolate).
It is a tasteful dessert, easy to make in advance. After it sets in the fridge you can serve it with fresh red fruit and a hint of mint.
Prepping time: 20 min
Cooling time: 3 hours
4 oz dark chocolate (60% cacao or higher)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 egg yolks
1 cup heavy cream
splash of milk
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler
In another bowl; whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until it turns white
Beat the heavy cream until you get the "Irish coffee thickness", when you start seeing lines in the cream
Poor the melted chocolate over the egg mixture and mix well.
Add a splash of milk and mix well. Do this as quickly as possible, so the chocolate doesn't turn into chunks
Now fold the heavy cream under the chocolate mixture
Store in fridge to set for about 3 hours
Serve with red fruit and mint
