.What would life be without chocolate? It is after all heaven wrapped in paper. When you eat 75% or 90% dark chocolate, you can even eat it without any guilt! Here is one of my favorite brands. You can buy it here.
I eat it as is, or use it in one of my favorite chocolate mousse recipes:
4-6 servings Prep time: 2 min Cook time: 10 min Total time: 12 min
• 1 bar dark chocolate (4 oz.) - 70% or 85% cacao • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream • 1 egg yolk • 1 tsp. vanilla powder • Raspberries (optional)
1. Whip the cream for about 3 minutes on high using an electric mixer. It shouldn't be too firm or too runny. 2. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a double boiler on the stove. 3. Add the vanilla powder to the cream. 4. Add the melted chocolate little by little to the cream and fold it in. 5. Separate the egg and add the egg yolk to the cream. 6. Using the mixer, mix for about 5-10 seconds. 7. Serve with some berries (optional).
