Are you ready to improve your culinary skills? If yes, then start it with the basics of making a mousse. To get started, you will need ingredients like:
- 300g good-quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
- 3 eggs, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup (55g) CSR Caster Sugar
- 1 tablespoon good-quality cocoa powder, sifted
- 300ml thickened cream, plus extra whipped cream to serve
- Grated chocolate, to serve
Testing Your Skills and Attention to Detail
Step 1. Put the chocolate in heatproof bowl over pan of gently simmering water. Stir it until it has melted and then, remove the bowl from heat and set it aside to slightly cool down.
Step 2. Place your sugar and eggs in large bowl. Beat it with an electric beater for the next 5 minutes or until the mixture is thick, pale and doubled in volume. Fold the cocoa powder and the cooled chocolate until it has combined.
Step 3. In a separate bowl, whip the cream until it thickens but be careful not to overbeat it. Use a big metal spoon to fold the cream carefully into chocolate mixture. Try keeping the mixture as light as possible. Spoon into six serving glasses and let it chill in the fridge for 60 minutes. Remove it 15 minutes prior serving and top it with grated chocolate and extra whipped cream before serving.
