Chocolate Mousse3:57 PM
This simple French classic has only 4 ingredients and comes together in about 20 minutes. Then just pop into the fridge, and it will be ready to impress at the end of your meal! Silky smooth and decadent, there is a good reason that chocolate mousse is a classic.
The trickiest thing about it is that you need to separate your eggs. Truthfully, it isn't difficult at all, but sometimes I look at a recipe and (lazy person that I am) I feel annoyed to see that as a step. This recipe is so simple that I can excuse a little egg separating. I like to do this step right away, so that my eggs are ready to go.
- 4 ounces semisweet chocolate
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 eggs, separated
- 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
- whipped cream, optional
