How to make the right chocolate mousse recipe?

There have been many recipes for it, That have not pleased my palate. They have not been fluffy and aerated enough, So they’ve been too cacao-heavy, too sweet, or grainy. But many so-called “easy-to-make” recipes for it contain a large proportion of cream, Which results in something akin to custard rather than the real deal. While partial to other desserts myself, I generally tended to find that a lot of recipes, Were more custardy than was appealing. That’s why I rather like the look and texture of actual mousse and prefer it to dessert versions.

What is used for this dish?

So just 5 main ingredients, all good stuff we like: dark chocolate, cream, eggs, sugar, and butter. But make sure you use dark chocolate purchased from the baking aisle of a supermarket and not the confectionary aisle (eating chocolate).

DARK CHOCOLATE:

 So all types of chocolate can be used, when it comes to making this dish. But one advantage of using cocoa (dark) chocolate is that it has a more subtle chocolate flavor – and I’ve found that as soon as you add additional flavors, like melted caramel or coffee, the nuances & subtleties of the cocoa base show up more. Although milk chocolate, it’s richer in taste and sweeter than dark chocolate so a little less is needed. But the higher concentration of cocoa solids (more brand) in your product range, So the less sugar, will be needed for a 1 kg pack. That’s why Chocolate intended for cooking is made especially so it melts smoothly and properly. 

EGGS:

So if you want to make an authentic, restaurant-style of this dish at your home, Then you have to use about three eggs for every half cup of heavy cream. The mousse is a homemade easy and quick recipe. But you will not achieve the same results with a homemade mousse recipe, That uses more than one egg per half cup of heavy cream. So there is simply no substitute for raw eggs. When whipping batter in this particular case.

So whip up your heavy cream –  Now do this by adding the cold cream to the mixer and beating it by turning on the machine. Although begin by whipping the cream at its medium setting until soft peaks begin to form. Now add a pinch of sugar and continue to whip the mixture until stiff peaks begin to form. When you lift up your mixer’s whisk attachment, There should be peaks that are smooth. While waiting for that icing sugar-cream mixture to get properly whipped together, So that it may join with egg yolk batter, And eventually become your next dessert creation’s cake batter, So why not pop some popcorn or make some coffee?
