So the election is over everyone – whew! Obviously those who didn’t vote for President Obama are probably upset but I for one am just glad the whole thing is over. I got four political phone calls on Election Day – I’m voting okay, leave me alone! I ate this chocolate mousse shortly before going to my local polling place and it really soothed my frazzled country-in-an-uproar nerves. I don’t think I’ve ever had a mousse before but I feel confident in saying that this one was just right in both texture & flavor. Kinda hard to photograph in an attractive way, but super tasty.
Things that start out this way usually end up delicious – don’t you agree?
Beautiful fluffy egg whites get mixed into deep, dark, bittersweet chocolate with sugar & egg yolks & voila! It’s mousse baby!
This is seriously one of the easiest things I have ever made. I didn’t even have to go to the grocery store for anything and it took like 5 minutes. Plus I got to use some of my fancy glassware that I never seem to bust out for regular stuff….like actual drinks.
In conclusion – buy this book, make this mousse, eat it and heave a huge sigh of relief.
