Thermomix Chocolate Mousse

I have tried a few mousse recipes in my time, but always go back to one. It was one my ex’s mum passed onto me, and you can add any chocolate bar chopped up of your choice and it’s aways good. One Easter I put peppermint crisp through it, and then served it in hollow Easter eggs on egg cups. It was a domestic goddess moment I tells ya!

I was having a bit of an inventive afternoon and wanted chocolate mousse to put between layers of cake and over the top of it, but couldn’t be bothered finding my faithful chocolate mousse recipe. So whilst I was busy Thermomixing away, I decided the try the recipe from the Everyday cookbook.

Woweeee, what a decadent chocolate mousse! Silky smooth, rich, chocolate heaven…. and it worked well on it’s own and on the cake. I preferred it more on the cake than on it’s own, as after about 2 spoonfuls you’ll hit a wall because it’s so rich. Cake recipe will follow another week πŸ˜‰

Easy Chocolate Mousse
From the Everyday Cookbook

4 large eggs, room temperature, separated
pinch of cream of tartar
80g icing sugar (made in TM)
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
60g unsalted butter
40g warm water
220g dark chocolate
400g cream

1. Heat empty TM bowl for 2 minutes at 50ΒΊC on speed 2.

2. Insert Butterfly. Place egg whites into TM bowl with cream of tartar and beat for 4 minutes on speed 4 with the MC off.

3. Through hole in lid, add Β½ the sugar, 1 teaspoon at a time during the last minute. Set aside in large bowl. Remove Butterfly.

4. Without cleaning, place egg yolks, remaining sugar, vanilla bean paste, butter, warm water and chocolate into TM bowl. Cook for 4 minutes at 70ΒΊC on speed 3.

5. Add to remaining egg whites.

6. Without cleaning bowl, insert Butterfly and pour cream into TM bowl. Beat for 20-40 seconds on speed 4 until thickened.

7. Fold all gently together with a large spoon. Pour into 6-8 dessert glasses and chill for at least 3 hours.

    I love the strawberry plate. I’ve made this mousse too and I thought it was too rich to eat a bucketful too. Look forward to the cake!

    Why, oh why, must you tempt me with your chocolate ways? I’ve been trying to get back on the health bandwagon since we got back from our honeymoon… in July.

    But this looks too good to pass up!
