You should really treat yourself with homemade mousse, this dessert can heal wounds man...lol
5 1/4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
14 ounces cold heavy cream
3 large egg whites
1 -ounce sugar
Sweetened whipped cream, for garnish, optional
Oreo heads or tails cookies, cake sprinkles, optional
Place chocolate in a large bowl set over a bain marie (also known as a water bath or double boiler in English) or in a double boiler at a low simmer. Stir chocolate until melted. Turn off the heat and let stand.
Beat the cream over ice until it forms soft peaks. Set aside and hold at room temperature. With a mixer, whip egg to soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar and continue whipping until firm.
Remove the chocolate from the bain marie and using a whisk, fold in the egg whites all at once. When the whites are almost completely incorporated, fold in the whipped cream. Cover the mousse and refrigerate for approximately 1 hour or until set. Serve in goblets topped with more whipped cream and shaved chocolate, Oreo cookies or cake sprinkles, if desired.
