Chocolate Mousse

I don’t think any self respecting chocoholic would deny him/herself of this ridiculously decadent chocolate dessert ever! I liked the one I made, although I’d want to give it another shot sometime with some really good quality chocolate. Here it is…thanks to www.joyofbaking.com
Ingredients:
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chopped
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 large eggs separated
Squirt of lemon juice
3 tbsp sugar divided
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup heavy/whipping cream
Method:
Using double-boiler method (stainless steel bowl over simmering pot of water) melt the chocolate and butter. Keep aside to cool. Whisk in the 2 egg yolks. Keep aside while you whip the egg whites and cream. In another bowl whip the egg whites and lemon juice till they form soft peaks. Add the sugar and whisk some more, till they form stiff peaks. Keep aside. Now add the remaining sugar to the cream and whisk till it is stiff. Now add 2 tbsp of the egg whites to the chocolate mixture to lighten it, and then fold in the remaining. Now fold in the whipped cream. Transfer to individual serving bowls and chill in refrigerator for at least 4-5 hours. Serve chilled with grated dark/white chocolate (forgot we had white chocolate used dark instead).
Close your eyes and lick your bowl 😉
