Dark chocolate mousse, airy by the egg whites and full of flavor through the dark chocolate. Hazelnuts give this mousse a crunchy bite and nutty flavor. The smoky whiskey makes the mousse complete.
Tasty chocolate mousse with hazelnuts, a delicious dessert, because of the nutty bite of the hazelnuts and the hint of smoke from the whiskey. And then it was gone. Not a smear could be find in the glass. Luckily I had made this picture before I called everyone because an empty dish is not so charming.
It’s not a skinny recipe, but on occasion you have to treat yourself to something good.
Tips dark chocolate mousse:
- The whiskey gives a wonderful flavour accent to this mousse. But if children are joining for dessert whiskey is not so wise. In that case you better don’t use it.
- The technique where you melt the chocolate in a bowl that hangs in hot water is called au-bain-marie. It is a very good method to heat something or melt chocolate, when you’ve got something that’s easily burns.
- You make sure that the bowl in which the egg-whites are stiffened is grease-free. Therefore wash it with hot water and detergent before use and dry-clean it. If your bowl isn’t grease-free the egg whites won’t stiffen.
The night before:
This mousse can make a night before and stored in the refrigerator.
