    My Private Note


    Serves: 6-8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Whisk the egg yolks with 4 tablespoons sugar in the top of a double boiler over boiling water until thick and creamy about 5 minutes. The egg should be pale and will double in the quantity.
    2. 2
      Place the broken chocolate, coffee and rum in the top of a double boiler over boiling water and leave until melted. Make sure the bottom of your bowl doesn't touch the boiling water.
    3. 3
      Once melted, stir in cocoa powder. Add butter little by little and stir until fully absorbed. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile whip egg whites with remaining tablespoon sugar until soft peak form.
    5. 5
      Add the chocolate mixture slowly to the egg mixture stir gently until thoroughly incorporated and smooth.
    6. 6
      Before you fold egg whites to your chocolate mixture make sure chocolate mixture is room temperature (if too hot it won't set properly and could be too runny).
    7. 7
      Fold a quarter of the egg whites into the cooled chocolate mixture, continue with the remaining egg whites using a lift and fold motion with your spatula.
    8. 8
      Pour mousse into small ramekins or glasses.
    9. 9
      Refrigerate over night.
    10. 10
      Serve with berries and chocolate curls if desired.

      I made this as one of our Chrismas day lunch desserts and was thoroughly enjoyed by those that ate it. I got 8 1/2 small bowls. The only problem I had was with the butter even though I was only adding one small cube at a time and in the end I had a pool of butter fat so transfered to a mixing bowl and using the whipping beaters on the mixmaster I whipped it till it fully merged, I'm not sure if this was because I used 100 grams of 85% cocoa dark chocolate and 70 grams of milk chocolate (both being Lindt chocolate) but all came together in the end. Thank you Hanka for a delightful dessert for our Christmas lunch.

      Wonderful lushious and choclatey! Your note was very helpful. There are a lot of chocolate mousse recipes and although I tried to use the recipe sifter to sift out the ones with cream, they still sneaked in under another name. This is just what I was looking for.
