DIRECTIONS

  • Break the chocolate up into small pieces.
  • Melt them either over a double boiler or in the microwave.
  • Add the eggs yolks, one at a time, and incorporate thoroughly into the chocolate.
  • You have to stir fast so the chocolate doesn't cook the yolks.
  • Add the brandy.
  • Whip the whites until stiff.
  • Slowly fold them into the chocolate mixture.
  • Pour into individual dessert glasses, or into one large serving bowl.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Note: You can also pour it into a prepared pie crust and freeze it for Mirj's Incredibly Rich Chocolate Mousse Pie.
  • Note: This is a very basic recipe, which can be doubled, trebled, quadrupled, etc.
  • Just remember, use 2 eggs for every 4 ounces (100 grams) of chocolate.
