Chilled Chocolate Mousse with Strawberry Sauce
Method

A light, summery and chocolaty recipe!!

  • Beat the heavy cream in a mixer’s bowl until it becomes whipped cream and store it in the fridge.
  • Puree the frozen strawberries in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Add ¼ of the whipped cream to the strawberry puree. Mix quickly with a spatula to combine. Add the remaining ¾ in batches and fold gently so the mixture doesn’t lose its volume.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  • Wash the mixer’s bowl and wipe dry. Place back on mixer’s stand. Beat the egg yolks and eggs with the whisk attachment for 5-6 minutes, until they become very fluffy.
  • At the same time, add the water and sugar to a small saucepan and place over high heat. Boil until the syrup reaches 121* C (249* F) or when it starts to darken in color.
  • Add the syrup to the egg mixture in a thin, slow stream, while beating continuously.
  • Place a metallic bowl over a saucepan full of simmering water. Add both types of chocolate to the bowl, cut into pieces. Stir until they melt.
  • Add the chocolate mixture to the mixer and mix till well combined.
  • Add the egg and chocolate mixture to the whipped cream mixture. Fold in gently with a spatula.
  • divide the mix in serving bowls.

For the strawberry sauce:

  • Add all of the ingredients to a pot. Place over very low heat. Simmer until the mixture starts to thicken. As soon as it does, transfer to a blender and beat until smooth. If you want an even smoother mixture, pass through a sieve so that there are no small pieces or pulp.
  • Fill serving glasses with mousse and top with a layer of strawberry sauce. Refrigerate!
