Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !


Chocolate mousse.

Here is the best dessert ever :) You won't regret to try it!!

I'm always amazed about how easy it is to prepare!! I always wonder if I haven't forgotten anything, but no! And everybody will be happy! (But I don't prepare it every time I'm asked. I'm not sure, but there is the slightest chance that I could get bored. I don't want to find out if it is possible :))
Important: you must store the mousse at least 2 hours in the fridge to have the right consistency. And it must stay in the fridge until the very last minute!

Ingredients (for 6 people)
100 g chocolate
100 g butter
4 eggs
4 soup spoons sugar
1 teaspoon powdered coffee

If the mousse is intended for children, don't put coffee. (Of course, same if you don't like coffee). But the coffee really enhances the chocolate. Once I tried and made 2 mousses, one with and one without coffee. All the guests said that it was better with (yeah, some days, my friends are quite lucky!!!)

Melt together the butter and the chocolate. Here is the method.
In the salad bowl in which you are going to serve the mousse, beat together the egg yolks and the sugar, then add the chocolate-butter mixture. Add the coffee.
Beat the egg whites until stiff, then add to the mixture.
Leave 2 hours in the fridge before serving.
(You can also serve in verrines. If you do so, fill the verrines BEFORE putting the mousse in the fridge, not after).

Here you go :)

Bon appétit !!!
