Decadent Dark Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream and Berries
- 8 ounces dark chocolate chopped
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 4 large eggs separated
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Fresh berries, for garnish
- Dark chocolate and butter should be combined in a heat-resistant bowl. Ensure the bowl's bottom doesn't touch the water as you place it over a saucepan of heating water. Chocolate and butter must be smooth and melted after stirring.
- Remove it from heat and let it cool just a little.
- Whisk the egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla extract in another dish until they are creamy and light yellow.
- Now gradually add the melted chocolate to the egg yolk mixture while stirring regularly to ensure complete integration.
- Whip the heavy cream in another bowl until it forms soft peaks.
- In a bowl, whip the egg whites until firm peaks form.
- Avoid overmixing as you slowly fold the whipped cream, beaten egg whites, and chocolate mixture into one another.
- Spoon the chocolate mousse into serving glasses or bowls for at least two hours or until set, cover, and chill.
- Fresh berries should be garnished before serving.
