Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon
and today we are making a super easy two ingredient chocolate mousse. And you will not believe
how simple this is to make. The first thing you will need is some chocolate of course.
I am using some dark, milk and white. And then to each one of those we are going to
add some hot water. I’ll put the exact amounts of water that you need for each type of chocolate
on the Howtocookthat.net website for you. Microwave that for 30 seconds and then stir
and and you’ll see it is not quite smooth but we do need to stir it in the middle here.
And then microwave it for another 20 seconds stir it again and you can see now that it
is all melted and smooth. Do the same thing with your milk chocolate and your dark chocolate
you can use just one type of chocolate if you don’t want to layer it. But do make sure
that you using good quality chocolate that contains cocoa butter. Just check your ingredients
if it says it has vegetable fat in it then it no going to taste as good. Pour each on
into a seperate plastic bag, seal it up and flatten it out like this. Then you want to
place each of those flat like that in the freezer for about and hour. Take it out of
the freezer rip open the bag and place the cold mixture into a bowl and whip it on high
speed until it is smooth. Then add in the chilled water a little at a time and whip
it on high speed each time until it is the consistency of a thick cream. Pour that into
a piping bag or a plastic bag with the corner cut off and then pipe that into glasses. gently
tap the g;asses on the counter just to flatten out the edges and the top. And then pace that
in the fridge while you do the next one. Grab your bag of milk chocolate and whip it with
the beaters, add int eh cold water and whisk it in and this milk chocolate one is my favourite
one. If you are only going to make one make this one. Pipe it over the top of the dark
one and then chill it in the fridge again. This recipe is inspired by one from a french
chemist Dr Herve This but after experimenting with it I’ve changed the method completely.
In his one you hand whisk the mixture over a bowl of iced water for about ten minutes.
And the result is never as fluffy or as smooth as making it this way. And this way you don’t
have to stand there for ten minutes hand whisking. So it is a lot easier. Leave the dessert in
the fridge for about 30 minutes and it is ready to serve. I told you it was super simple.
And because it is just water and chocolate it tastes of, well pure chocolate. Share this
