Chocolate mousse

Method

  • Separate the egg whites and yolks into two different bowls.
  • Add the egg whites into the mixer’s bowl and beat them with the whisk attachment at high speed until they are fluffy and have a meringue-like texture, for about 5-7 minutes.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer.
  • At the same time, add the chocolate couverture into a large bowl and melt it over a bain-marie.
  • Add the sugar, the vanilla extract, and the salt into the bowl with the egg yolks. Whisk for 2 minutes until the sugar is incorporated into the yolks.
  • Remove the bowl with the chocolate from the bain-marie. 
  • Transfer the melted chocolate into the bowl with the egg yolks and whisk until the mixture is homogenized. This way, the temperature of the chocolate will “cook” the eggs.
  • Add one spoonful of the meringue into the bowl with the yolks and whisk until the 2 mixtures are homogenized.
  • Add the rest of the meringue and fold the mixture softly with a silicone spatula, so that the mousse does not lose its volume.
  • Divide the mousse among 2 bowls and refrigerate them for 4 hours so that the mousse thickens well.
  • Serve with icing sugar and decorate with mint leaves.
