Decadent Chocolate Mousse - Chametz Free
Lightly adapted from Genius Recipe
Serves 4
Recipe Ingredients:
  • ice cubes and cold water
  • 1 cup plus 1 Tbl. parve semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup water
  • whipped topping and/or nuts (optional)

Sukkot: Decrease water to 1/2 cup and add 1/4 cup Bartenura Etrog Citron Liqueur for a mellow sukkot treat giving it hint of etrog flavor [lemon type]

They say third time is a charm and so it was with this recipe. The first time I tried to make the mousse I got too much ice and water in the bowl and using an electric hand held mixer, I managed to tip the bowl and flood the chocolate with water!

The second time I again followed the recipe as given, did not flood the chocolate with water and the result was Decadent Chocolate Mousse Soup!! Delicious but it did not set up as it should.

Third time I increased my chocolate chips to approx 1 cup plus 3/4 cup. Used the handheld electric mix on low speed for about 5 minutes and my mousse set up perfectly! Topped with whip cream and served with a cup of coffee...wonderful. Add a cup or two of ice cubes into a large bowl. Place a smaller bowl on top of the cubes. Carefully add water to the larger bowl until the water comes up the sides of the smaller bowl a few inches. Set aside.

Combine chocolate chips and water in a 1 quart saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly. The chocolate will start to clump, then eventually melt. Remove from heat and continue to stir just until the chocolate melts completely.

Carefully pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared smaller bowl. If using a whisk, whisk like mad for 5 minutes or so, or until the mixture cools, starts to lose its sheen and becomes the consistency of thick sauce. If using an electric mixer, this could happen in a couple of minutes so don't daydream.

Pour or spoon thickened mixture into 4 dessert cups. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish with whipped topping and/or nuts to look fancy-schmancy. Cover if storing for more than 30 minutes. Will keep up to two days, covered and refrigerated.

Variations: For extreme chocolate flavor use bittersweet chocolate.

TIPS:

I added an extra tablespoon of chips in order to correct the amount of fat needed for the mousse to set up properly. If for some reason yours doesn't, or conversely hardens too much, simply nuke the bowl a minute or two to remelt the chocolate, then repeat the ice bath/whisking, adding more chocolate or water depending which disaster inconvenience you have to correct.
