Chocolate mousse is a classic dessert but as all the chocolate lovers I like it with dark chocolate. Served with a biscuit such as Cat’s tongues this is absolutely delightful.
For 4 persons
- 200g dark chocolate (one bar)
- 4 eggs
- 1 table spoon creme fraiche
- a pinch of salt
Make the chocolate melt in a bain-marie.
Once the chocolate is melted, add the creme fraiche.
Divide the yolks and the whites and add the yolks to the chocolate. Stir until well combined.
In a mixing bowl, add the pinch of salt to the egg white and whip them up.
Mix one third of the chocolate with the eggs very carefully. Then add the remaining chocolate, mix well but very slowly to have a nice mousse.
Pour the mousse in a big bowl or in ramekins and keep refrigered fro at least 2 hours.
I always do my mousse one day before eating it.
