Chocolate Mousse

By Pielove, member

February 5th, 2009

My husband doesn't eat much dessert, and I shouldn't eat much dessert, so I made a one-third scale batch of mousse.  It was a perfect three small servings.  I have made mousse before, but this recipe is beautifully light yet very chocolatey.  This would be a great dinner-party dessert, light but very satisfying!  Of course, it was a huge hit with the four-year-old, she continued talking about it for weeks.  I was a little worried about the raw egg, but the chances of salmonella are so low that I went ahead anyway.  Since I licked the bowl when I was making it (such sacrifices!) and didn't get sick, I figured it was okay for general consumption.  Next time I will look for pasteurized egg whites.
