About Me

I was a banker who pursued my passion in baking and turned it into a home-based business.I taught Home Economics (HELE) in The Learning Child in Ayala Alabang. I also was a community volunteer and taught arts and crafts and home economics to the children in Virlanie, a non-govt institution that care for streetchildren.

Chocolate Mousse

This is a super easy desert that needs no baking. The secret is to use the best chocolate. I use Ghirardelli.  It is laced with rum but if it will be served to non-adults too,  I suggest you skip the rum.

6 ounces bittersweet or dark chocolate
1/2 cup fresh milk
2 tablespoons rum (OPTIONAL)
2 large fresh eggs
2 tablespoons
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
4 tablespoon white sugar

Break the chocolate into pieces. Combine with milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat until smooth, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add the egg yolks and rum. Whisk until smooth. Set aside.

In another small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff, add the 2 tablespoons of sugar and beat until it holds a peak. Set aside.

In another bowl, whip the heavy cream with the remaining sugar until it holds a peak.  Reserve half for topping.

Whisk in the chocolate mixture into the egg white gently but thoroughly. Then fold in half of  thewhipped cream. into the mixture until well blended. Turn into demitasse cups or glasses. 

With the remaining whipped cream, get a rose tip and pipe a rosette on top to garnish. Refrigerate for around 4 hours or overnight or until set.
