Wonderful traditional mousse au chocolat! “Chocolat de chez chocolat” as we say in French. I will be taking it to a friend’s place for dinner. It serves 12.
1- Melt 200 gr of high quality dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao content) au bain-marie.
2- In the meantime, mix six egg whites very firm (I used seven eggs since they were organic and rather small). Set aside.
3- In another bowl mix six egg yolks with two tablespoons of brown sugar, until it is homogenous. Add two cup (400 ml) of heavy cream and mix again.
4- Mix the melted chocolate with the yolk mix. Then gently fold in the whites.
5- Pour in a large bowl and refrigerate for at least three hours.
