Recipe: Chocolate Mousse

 I decided I wanted to try a traditional chocolate mousse. It's amazingly delicious and just melts in your mouth. I will warn you that it contains raw eggs. Most of the time in a clean environment, that shouldn't bother most people. However, do not serve this recipe to pregnant women. And if you are especially concerned about it, consider using pasteurized eggs instead of fresh.

Chocolate Mousse:
1 cup (110mL) cold whipping cream
200g milk or dark chocolate
3 eggs, separated
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 1/2 tsp vanilla sugar

Separate your eggs.
Cut your chocolate into pieces and melt it in the microwave or over a double boiler.

Allow the chocolate to cool enough so it's not giving off any heat and fold in the egg yolks.
Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add egg whites and vanilla.
Whip it to soft peaks.
Slowly add the sugar and beat to stiff peaks.
Fold chocolate and egg white mixtures together carefully.
Whip the cream to soft peaks.
Fold it into the chocolate mixture.
Pour into individual glasses and refrigerate at least an hour to get it to set up. Three hours is better. Overnight should still be okay, but don't make this dessert more than a day ahead because of the eggs.
It sets up lovely and fits perfectly into the glass.
This is a rich, decadent dessert and is a general crowd pleaser.

I finished all of my portion.
