Chocolate Mousse

Wishing you all again a Wonderful Happy New Year friends, we had a great time at my SIL's place and had a wonferful new year eve...To start this year, am here with a fantastic, easy and delicious chocolate mousse which i used to prepare often at home since its takes really few minutes to prepare with simple ingredients like chocolate, eggs, sugar and sometimes with butter...Chocolate mousse is such a great dessert which looks pretty and everyone gets their own serving and you can make it a day before to serve this delicious dessert..I prepared this chocolate mousse with dark chocolate pieces.. chocolate mousse is quite an easy dessert at the same its bits trickly too, if you add the egg yolks when the chocolate is too warm, it will get cooked while if its cold it will not get well mixed with the other ingredients when they are added...If u dont fold the egg whites to the chocolate egg mixture, your mousse will not be fluffy,but dense...We just love this chocolate mousse and everyone at home relish these soft fluffy mousse whenever i prepared at home..Am sending this chocolate mousse to Umm's Iftar Moments..


250gr Dark chocolate bar
1tbsp Butter
4nos Eggs
1/4cup Sugar
Pinch salt

Separate the yellow yolks and white yolks..meanwhile break the dark chocolate into small pieces and heat in microwave oven with butter for 3-4minutes in high,mix well and let them sit for few seconds(chocolate mixture should be slightly warm but not cool)..Beat together the yellow yolks,sugar in a bowl until they turns creamy, pale yellowish, add the melted chocolate to this egg mixture and beat until they get well mixed...

Whip the egg whites in a bowl with a pinch of salt until they turns foamy, beat until the soft peeks forms..now fold the whipped egg whites to the already prepared chocolate-egg mixture little by little until they get well mixed..

Spoon the mousse to serving bowls or glasses..arrange in fridge for atleast 6-8hours, i usually keep them for overnite..Serve with whipped cream or any seasonal fruits..
