A quick and easy recipe that contains no eggs or gelatin / Agar Agar and is suitable for any occasion. Eggless chocolate mousse has nice light, airy and smooth texture. I have used real chocolate to make this.There is no gelatin in mousse, so it is purely vegetarian chocolate mousse. It is a heavy desert as we use cream. Small portions will be nice to gorge on.
It was a successful challenge for me for our #foodiemonday #bloghop theme to celebrate National Mousse day today.
Recipe for Eggless Chocolate Mousse:
175 Gms Dairy Milk Chocolate(Plain) Or any Cooking Chocolate
25 Gms White Cooking Chocolate
6 Digestive Biscuits
1.5 Tbsp Butter (Cold)
120 Gms Whipping Cream(Cold)
Chocolate to Garnish
Place the chocolate and butter in a bowl.Put that bowl on top of simmering water saucepan . Make sure that water is not touching to the bottom of the top bowl. Melt the chocolate completely and stir continuously to ensure there are no lumps . Remove it once the chocolate has melted completely and let it cool for about 15-20 minutes.
In the mean time whip the cold cream using a hand blender till stiff peaks form. Keep some cream aside for topping. Unfold the balance cream into the chocolate mixture and mix slowly so that the cream is well incorporated. Do not over mix.
Take a serving bowl or glass. Crush the digestive biscuits. Add a tsp of butter and mix well. Put it equally into the bowl / glass and press with a spoon to spread evenly.Pour the Chocolate Mousse . Refrigerate for 1.5 hrs. Just before serving top it with some fresh cream and place a chocolate on top or you can garnish with choco chips or fruits or anything of your choice.
You can make it in advance and please your guests.
