Hello, everybody! The Fresh Pioneer is back and I have a delicious recipe for chocolate mousse. Why?
Well, um, because it's CHOCOLATE MOUSSE.
Now that we've got that squared away, you'll need
1 1/2 bars of fine chocolate
4 large egg yolks
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cups sugar
Ta-dah! Just like this...
Put 1/2 cup of heavy cream in a pot and stir over low heat until steaming. Do not boil! When it's cool, after about five minutes, add the egg mixture until well blended. We don't want the egg mix to cook as soon as it hits the cream, but it has to be hot enough to blend. Once blended, return it all to the pot and cook for five minutes over low heat, stirring constantly until it's thickened.
After the egg mix has cooled for about five minutes (again) add the chocolate. Stir until blended. Now, put the chocolate mixture way up high, where no will be able to stick their fingers in it while it cools. The directions say 2 hours, but I popped it into the freezer for 15 minutes and it was pretty cool.
Ok, that's all for now! I did a cover reveal for my newest historical over on my blog here, but I'll post another photo in case people are too busy making chocolate mousse to wander over there. :D
Have a wonderful week and see you sooooon!
