What do you do when you have a guest coming over for lunch in less than an hour? I will be doing the headless chicken dance between the appetizers, main course and of course, my favourite part of the meal, dessert. Oh yeah! I do elaborate meals when we have guests. Like how I had mentioned in my previous post, I think of dessert first. So, I made this instant chocolate mousse and left it in the fridge to set,then I continued my dance juggling between the pots on the 4 burners :-)
Clank! Plonk! Bang! Sometimes they are music to my ears, not necessarily all the time!
Chocolate Mousse Cake. Whenever I make or eat a mousse, especially Chocolate, I always think of my college friend, Priyanka. We were the mousse eating partners :-)
INSTANT TRIPLE - CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
Recipe source: Nigella Lawson
Mini marshamallows - 150 g (you can use regular marshmallows too)
Butter-50 g, softened
Chocolate- 250 g (I used a mix 70%, semi-sweet and milk), chopped into small pieces
Hot water-60 ml
Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
- In a heavy-bottom saucepan, melt the marshmallows,butter,chocolate and water together, stirring every now and then.
- Meanwhile, whip the cream with vanilla until thick.
- Fold it into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth mixture. ( I let the chocolate cool very well for the fear that the cream might melt.)
- Pour into individual ramekins and let it set in the fridge for about 1 hour.
Verdict: Silky smooth luscious wonderful heavenly decadent perfectly textured dessert!
