Recipe: Chocolate Mousse

By Bint Ali

I had a love-hate relationship with chocolate mousse. I love eating it, but I hated making it – until I found this recipe. Its simple, it works, and its delicious, which I believe are all necessary characteristics of a great recipe. I divided this recipe between very cute paper cups (as shown) and served them at a nikah.

200g dark chocolate, chopped
2 eggs, separated
2/3 cup thickened cream, whipped
8 strawberries, sliced

1. With an electric mixer, beat egg whites on medium speed until stiff peaks form. You will know they are stiff when the mixer blades are lifted and the peaks hold their shape.
2. Melt chocolate in a dry bowl in the microwave, in 30 second intervals. With my medium-power microwave, I found it takes a minute and a half.
3. Stir egg yolks (the yellow part) in to chocolate until just combined. Chocolate may seize, which is normal. Remember, you need to work quickly.
4. Add cream to the chocolate and egg yolk mixture until just combined, then fold in to egg white.
5. Divide between four glasses, and top with strawberries. Refrigerate for a minimum three hours, or for best results, overnight.

Tips for success (inshaAllah!):
You must use a dry bowl for beating the egg whites, and melting the chocolate.
You need to work quickly, because chocolate may seize after the egg yolks are added.
