Chocolate Mousse

1 Oct

mousse(or the filling from the anniversary Chocolate Torte)

1   pound semisweet chocolate (today I used some Trader Joe’s dark chocolate also)

2   whole eggs

4   eggs, separated

2   cups whipping cream

6   tablespoons powdered sugar

Melt chocolate over double boiler; let cool to 95°.

eggsWhile chocolate is cooling, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry, set aside.  Whip cream with powdered sugar until soft peaks form.

Back to the now cool chocolate.  Add whole eggs and mix well.  Add yolks, mix well.  Stir in a little of the cream and whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten.  Fold remaining cream and whites into the chocolate until no streaks remain.

Chill at least 4 hours.
