    gourmandelle's Note:

    This is the first time I make chocolate mousse! This is not a recipe like the ones written in cookbooks because I just followed my instincts not some strict rules, but I can assure you it is AMAZING! It is also the first time I eat chocolate mousse and I am absolutely astonished by the texture and flavors. I think this will be the only way I am going to eat chocolate from now on.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 100 g semisweet chocolate, chopped (you can also use dark chocolate 85% cocoa- it's healthier)
    • 30 ml coffee (dark-brewed)
    • 2 large eggs, separated
    • 1 tablespoon sucanat (skip this ingredient if you're using sweet chocolate)
    • 3 ml rum extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 pinch sea salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a saucepan one-third full with hot water, and in a bowl set on top, melt together the chocolate and coffee, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.
    2. 2
      I used a steam oven to melt the chocolate. It's easier and it is ready in 7-8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Whisk the egg yolks with 1 tbsp of sucanat and rum for about 3 minutes until the mixture is thick, like mayonnaise. (You can also use a handheld electric mixer.).
    4. 4
      Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg yolks.
    5. 5
      Beat the egg whites with salt and vanilla in a separate bowl until you get a foamy texture.
    6. 6
      Fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture and whisk just until incorporated. Be careful not to over mix!
    7. 7
      Divide the mousse into serving dishes and place in bowls. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until firm. ( I wasn't that patient so I ate it after only one hour. It had a sticky, caramel-like texture which I actually loved!).
    8. 8
      Extra ingredients:.
    9. 9
      I absolutely love spicy chocolate! If you want to taste something different add a pinch of chili powder in the chocolate mousse. It will be amazing!
    10. 10
      Also, you can get that spicy flavor by adding ground Sichuan pepper berries. Just a pinch or two are enough to get a unique aroma.
    11. 11
      If you want something with a seasonal flavor you can add some cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves. It will smell and taste like Christmas!

      The flavor of this was really good, but my little family didn't care for the texture. I've never seen a chocolate mousse without cream before. That being said I think that this would be an excellent recipe if you were lactose intolerant. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 3.
