Chocolate mousse is a classic French dessert. The styles range from gooey to firm. This version falls into the former group. This is an extremely easy recipe. It’s a very chocolaty dessert that everyone will love. If you like, garnish it with fresh berries or chocolate shavings – or both.
6 oz. best quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
1 tbs. dark rum (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla
Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over but not touching barely simmering water in a saucepan. Heat, stirring, until the chocolate melts, about 2-3 minutes. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate in a microwave oven.
Remove from the heat and add the rum (optional) and vanilla. Then add the egg yolks, one at a time.
Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks using a mixer. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture.
Pour the mixture into one large serving dish or individual ones. For best results, chill the mousse for at least 4 hours before serving.
