Units: US | Metric
- 1Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a metal bowl (I use my kitchen-aid bowl). And set it over a pan of simmering water.
- 2Whisk the mixture until it reaches a temperature of 160 degrees (use an instant read or candy thermometer), it should take approximately 5 minutes. Whisk the entire time, being careful not to have scrambled eggs.
- 3Remove bowl from the pan of simmering water and place on your mixer and beat with the whisk attachment at medium – high speed until it is cool to your touch(on the outside of the bowl) and very thick. This should take approximately 10 minutes.
- 4While beating the egg and sugar mixture, melt your chocolate and cool to lukewarm.
- 5In a separate bowl, combine the whipping cream and Baileys together and beat until stiff peaks form.
- 6Pour the melted chocolate over the egg and sugar mixture and fold in until blended. Then fold in the whipped cream mixture. I will add a small amount of the cream mixture and blend it in (this will lighten up the mixture a bit) and then fold in the remaining until only streaks of white remain.
- 7Place in a bowl, cover with saran wrap and chill till set, overnight.
- 8Once set, it can be spread over a cake layer to be used as filling. Make sure you pipe a dam of your buttercream around the outer edges of the layers to prevent the mousse from being pushed out.
- 9This is also excellent served as just a mousse dessert.
