When I’m feeling in the mood for something sweet (which I am a lot), I run through the list of possibilities: cookies, brownies, ice cream, candy… I return to this chocolate mousse over and over. It is rich and chocolaty and super satisfying. You can eat just a spoonful at a time and spread out the happiness or you can more realistically just eat it in one sitting.
It is also very fancy! If you need something to impress any dukes or duchesses visiting your home, you can always resort to this recipe. It seems complicated to make, but it is actually pretty quick and easy. There are a few pieces of kitchen equipment that will make it much easier: a double boiler and kitchen thermometer. But you could squeak by without them and still succeed!
You might as well meet this member of our family. He comes in handy ALL THE TIME. I buy him in a 10 pound bar, and his life expectancy is close to a year. It gives me comfort to know that I have the hugest bar of chocolate on hand at all times. I suggest everyone get ones. It is like therapy.
