After making the cupcakes I posted yesterday, I had 4 egg yolks that I needed to do something with. So I came across a recipe for heavenly chocolate mousse that required 3 eggs and went for it. I figured this would also work well for Mother’s Day. Buy some cute dish or container to put this in and give Mom her own individual Chocolate Mousse. I did see some cute flower bowls in the dollar section of Target that would be perfect. You could even just get some clear plastic drinking glass.
This mousse is a little more complex to make that the chocolate mousse recipe I have shared before, so if you are really scared you can always go with that one. However, this one is very decadent and rich. It has a very strong chocolate flavor along with being dense and thick. Now you could always go for milk chocolate if semi-sweet ain’t your thing. I however am a semi-sweet kind of gal.
This chocolate mousse really is easy to make, but you do need to be careful with the egg part. It does require a candy thermometer and you have to be very careful once it reaches the 160 degrees. Other than that this heavenly chocolate mousse really is easy.
