No I did not forget you! I was just so busy this week, notably because of some great culinary experiences. And I will tell you more about that a bit later :)
Today I’m presenting to you a family recipe: a good chocolate mousse, a bit creamy! And for this case, in a Halloween way among other things :p
|It’s cute this sweet spider, isn’t it? ;)|
Or otherwise, here is a “strawberry tart” version which is also really interesting!
Let’s go right now for the recipe:
- 200g black chocolate
- 30g butter
- 30g sugar
- 1 small tbs of crème fraiche
- 3 eggs
- 1 pinch of salt
Start by gently melting the chocolate with just a bit of water into the microwave oven (30 seconds by 30 seconds for example at the beginning).
Before completely melting the chocolate, add the butter and continue to melt. You can leave some chocolate chunks, it’s delicious to find them when it’s time to taste :)
During this time, separate the eggs; keep the yolks and put aside the whites. Whisk the yolks with the sugar until you get a bubbly mixture.
Add the small tablespoonful of crème fraiche and mix.
Add the pinch of salt to the whites and whip them up. Stir in the whites to the chocolate batter, little by little, with a spatula.
When the mousse is homogeneous, pour it into a container and immediately put it in your fridge.
Eat the mousse well cool after a couple of hours into the fridge to give it some time to get thicker.
TIPS AND TRICKS
Just one advice: let your imagination go wild :p
I had a lot of fun this time with the chocolate mousse :)
You can simply spread out the mousse on a homemade cookie dough, as soon as you stir in the whites. Before, you can if you want, pour some jam that you like on the cookie dough (raspberry for me :), delicious!
Mousse in a strawberry tart way
Before serving, put some strawberries on top of the mousse and sprinkle with icing sugar.
You can also give the shape you want to the mousse and keep it into the fridge before adding the finishing touches. A Halloween spider for example ;). Some chocolate balls made before and kept into the fridge, some toothpicks, 2 grains of sea salt for the eyes and it’s done :)
Poured into a small jar, that’s perfect too :)
