Eggless Chocolate Mousse
I love chocolate mousse but have been hesitant when it comes to making them at home especially for the boys as it contains raw eggs. Then I found this recipe on Nigella Express where she makes this instant chocolate mousse using marshmallows and no eggs.
The first time I made this I used the exact recipe but it turned quite bitter for my taste as she used dark chocolate and no sugar . So the second time I used a bit of sugar but still with the same amount of dark chocolate, the taste was better but the mixture ended up quite hard after sometime in the fridge. So I gave up trying to make it until recently my little guy asked me when I was going to make chocolate mousse again. Of course since the boys loved it I tried it again but this time I used dark and milk chocolate. The taste finally satisfied me , got a thumbs up from my little guy so thats enough satisfaction for me :)
Recipe : Eggless Chocolate Mousse , recipe adapted from Instant Chocolate Mousse from Nigella Express.
65g milk chocolate, broken into pieces
45g dark chocolate broken into pieces
2 tbsp castor sugar ( or grind regular sugar in a grinder ) ( optional)
75g white marshmallows
2 tbsp hot water
200ml whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla essence
Place milk chocolate, dark chocolate, butter , sugar, marshmallows and hot water in a small saucepan. Stir continuously over a low heat till everything melts and becomes glossy. Remove from heat and cool .
While the chocolate mixture cools down, whip the cream to peaks, gently stir in the cooled chocolate mixture into the cream . Pour into tea cups or little serving glasses ( or a serving bowl instead of individual glasses ) and chill for an hour or two. Dust with cocoa powder if you like. Serve.
Ps. If you wish to make more just double the amount.
Enjoy every spoon full
