#SaturdaySessions: Dark chocolate mousse pots
If chocolate be the food of love, then eat on. What's not to love about lush, naughty licks of this cocoa-fuelled treat? These dark chocolate mousse pots are easy make and require minimal clean-up — giving you more time to spend on the things that matter. Try your hand at this recipe from fine chocolate maker Godiva.
Here's what you'll need
1 1/2 cups heavy cream, divided
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
170g of dark chocolate, finely chopped
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons grated dark chocolate or cocoa nib pieces, divided
How to make it
1. Place chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. Set aside.
2. Heat ½ cup heavy cream, granulated sugar and salt in saucepan over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and cream comes to a boil. Immediately pour boiling cream over chopped chocolate. Let stand 20 seconds. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Add vanilla extract and whisk until fully combined and creamy. Let cool 5 minutes or until tepid.
3. Whip remaining 1 cup heavy cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold half of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture to lighten it. Gently fold in remaining whipped cream. For a slightly crunchier mousse, fold in 1 to 2 tablespoons of grated chocolate or cocoa nibs with the second half of the whipped cream.
4. Spoon or pipe mixture into 4 tiny glass jars or wine glasses. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours until the mousse sets.
