Chocolate Mousse (Method II) / Mousse au Chocolat (version II)

Here's one of the classics of the French Cuisine...a simple, delicious and easy-to make fluffy dessert, presentable for any occasion but definitely a perfect one to enjoy the arrival of my Papa, who is here with us for the holidays. Hurray, it's going to be fun during these two months !!!!!

I've always been making chocolate mousse but I find this version finer in taste and texture compared to the  other version of the chocolate mousse which I've posted previously here . Enjoy and have a nice time !!!

Ingredients for 6 to 10 / Ingrédients pour 6-10 personnes:

350g good quality black chocolate / 350g chocolat noir de bonne qualité
250g fresh double cream / 250g crème double fraiche épaisse
6 eggs / 6 oeufs
a pinch of salt / une pinçée de sel
30g granulated sugar / 30g sucre en poudre
30g icing sugar / 30g sucre glace

Method / la préparation:

Break the chocolate into small pieces.
Casser le chocolat en petits morceaux.

Bring the cream to a boil, in a saucepan while whisking to prevent it from overflowing.
Porter la crème à ébullition dans une casserole tout en fouettant, afin d'éviter qu'elle se déborde.

Remove the cream from the heat and add the chocolate pieces. Stir well until you get a smooth and shiny dough.
Hors du feu, ajouter le chocolat et mélanger jusqu'à obtenir une pâte brillante onctueuse et lisse.

Separate the egg yolks and the whites in two separate bowls.
Séparez les jaunes d'œufs et les blancs.

Add the egg yolks, one at a time, to the chocolate mixture while whisking it vigorously.
Ajouter les jaunes d' oeufs, un par un au mélange du chocolat tout en fouettant énergiquement.

Let the temperature of the mixture come down at room temperature.
Laisser le mélange refroidir à température ambiante.

In another bowl, whip the whites of the eggs with a pinch a salt, until you get stiff peaks.
Monter les blancs en neige très ferme, avec une pinçée de sel.

Add both the granulated and icing sugar to the whites and continue whipping until they've well dissolved.
Ajouter le sucre en poudre et le sucre glace tout en continuant de battre les blancs.

Gently fold in the whites to the chocolate mixture by adding 1/3 of the whites at a time. Be gentle while doing this.(We don’t want to break the bubbles formed in the egg whites while doing this.)
Incorporer délicatement les blancs en neige au mélange chocolat en ajoutant 1 / 3 des blancs à chaque fois.

Place the mixture in individual bowls or in one big serving bowl and refrigerate overnight.

Placer le mélange dans des bols individuels ou dans un grand bol de service et réfrigérer toute une nuit.

Garnish/ Decorate as you please with some whipped cream, biscuits or nuts or Mint or chocolate chips and enjoy!!!
Garnir / Décorer selon vos goûts avec des copeaux de chocolat, de la crème chantilly, des biscuits ou avec la menthe et Bon appétit!!!

Vinolia said...

Jackeline PAUL said...

Coucou tout le monde, pensez vous que la texture de la mousse serait plus onctueuse avec de la crème liquide légère ? le but n'étant pas de faire de la crème au chocolat... :)

Vinolia said...

je n' ai jamais essayé avec une crème légère.... je pense que la texture ne serait pas pareille :)
