Chocolate Mousse




Difficulty:Easy
Prep Time:20 Minutes
Cook Time:15 Minutes
Serves:8

Nutritional Information

This chocolate mousse can be served with fruit, nuts, cookies or even a spoon!

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 1 3/4 ounces quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 ounces espresso or strong coffee
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon flavorless, granulated gelatin
  • cornmeal cookies, see recipe

Directions

  • 1. Chill 1 1/2 cups whipping cream in refrigerator. Chill metal mixing bowl and mixer beaters in freezer.
  • 2. In top of a double boiler, combine chocolate chips, coffee, rum and butter. Melt over barely simmering water, stirring constantly. Remove from heat while a couple of chunks are still visible. Cool, stirring occasionally to just above body temperature.
  • 3. Pour remaining 1/4 cup whipping cream into a metal measuring cup and sprinkle in the gelatin. Allow gelatin to "bloom" for 10 minutes. Then carefully heat by swirling the measuring cup over a low gas flame or in 10 second bursts in the microwave. Do not boil or gelatin will be damaged. Stir mixture into the cooled chocolate and set aside.
  • 4. In the chilled mixing bowl, beat cream to medium peaks. Stir 1/4 of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture to lighten it. Fold in the remaining whipped cream in two doses. There may be streaks of whipped cream in the chocolate and that is fine. Do not over work the mousse.
  • 5. Spoon into bowls or martini glasses and chill for at least 1 hour. Garnish with cornmeal cookies and serve.
