Nick's Picks: Chocolate Mousse

02.12.14 | Nick Finlayson | Comments[2]

Chocolate Mousse

2 Cups Dark Chocolate Chips

1 3/4 Cups Heavy Cream

3 Egg Whites

1 Tbsp Sugar

Melt the chocolate chips in microwave or over a double boiler. Allow to cool slightly

In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream with an electric mixer for about 10 minutes. Should be stiff like whipped cream.

In a separate large bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer. After about 5 minutes add sugar and continue to beat. Beat until very stiff, about 10 minutes total.

When the chocolate is warm, fold in the egg whites. When almost combined, fold in heavy cream. Mix well, cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Makes 6 servings

I can't wait to try this tonight for my husband's birthday! Is it safe to eat if I'm pregnant, since the eggs are not cooked? Thanks!

There is a health risk when eating raw eggs. Please consult your doctor first, but usually people with good health don't have a problem. Check your eggs when you buy them and again when you go to use them. They should be clean, no cracks and no odor.
