Chocolate Mousse

This chocolate mousse is a part of Love and Death by Chocolate, but it's also great on its own.

Chocolate Mousse
(makes approximately 1 ½ cups)

2 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 teaspoon butter
½ cup heavy cream
1 egg white
2 teaspoons sugar


Place the chocolate and butter in a small bowl and microwave on low power for 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Set aside.

Whip the cream until it holds peaks that are not too stiff (but past soft) about 1 minute.

In a stainless steel bowl, whip the egg white until it holds soft peaks. Continue whipping and add gradually add the sugar, whipping until the mixture holds stiff peaks.

Add half of the whipped cream to the chocolate and fold to combine. Add the chocolate mixture and the remaining whipped cream to the egg white and fold to combine.

Hi-me again. Another small error to point out...sorry! You call for 1 teaspoon of butter in the mousse, but again, don't tell where to use it. So I guessed that it gets combined with the chocolate in the small bowl to be put into the microwave. It seems to have turned out I think I guessed right.

Thank you for pointing that out! The recipe is correct now - and you were correct to add the butter to the chocolate.

I apologize for the errors - there are so many parts to this and I started going cross-eyed after reading each one over and over so I clearly missed a few mistakes!
