Sugar Free Chocolate Flourless Mousse
1 c. scalded cream
1/3 lb chopped <a href="http://www.ycchocolate.com/bakingchocolate/">YC Chocolate
70% Dark Chocolate for cooking</a>
2 Egg whites (or 3 if you want an airier texture)
1 tsp Singing Dog Vanilla™ pure vanilla extract
This recipe makes a delicious sugar free mousse that is the perfect compliment to the <a
href="http://www.ycchocolate.com/recipe1.html">Flourless, No Sugar Added Chocolate
Cake recipe</a> but is also great alone or with fresh fruit.
Since the quality of the chocolate and vanilla determine the quality of a mousse, we
recommend Singing Dog Vanilla™ pure vanilla extract for this recipe.
Together with YC Chocolate 70% Dark Chocolate for cooking it imparts a rich and a
silky texture with subtle complementary vanilla tones.
Place chopped chocolate and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl. Pour scalded cream
over the chocolate and mix thoroughly to melt chocolate and combine. After chocolate is
melted, stir in (whole) egg and mix to combine. (Alternate method: Place all above
ingredients in a processor and blend for about 1 minute until thoroughly melted and mixed).
Continue mixing until temperature of the mixture is lukewarm (this will thicken the mixture
and make it more creamy).
With an electric mixture, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Blend by folding egg whites
into the chocolate mixture until whites steaks are gently folded in.
Pour into serving dishes and chill until set (usually overnight).
