This is really a mousse for adults. If you want, you could make two…one without the liqueur (for any children who are present).
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup Godiva Dark Chocolate liqueur
- 1/4 lb. semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 2 egg whites, room temperture (they fluff up more in volume)
In a small pot, over medium heat,stir the sugar and liqueur until the sugar dissolves. Do not let it boil. Remove from heat.
Fill a medium sized saucepan with water about 2 inches up the sides of the pan. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Place the chocolate in a metal bowl and let it sit above the water, but not touching. With a spatula, slowly stir until it becomes smooth. Stir in 2 tbsp. of the cream and all the liqueur. Set it aside to cool (about 20 minutes).
Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Whisk the remaining whipping cream until soft peak form.
Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Now gently fold in the cream until just combined.
This should be equally divided into 6 of your fanciest dessert bowls. You can serve with whipped Shortbread and Lacy Delights.
If you still have room, a cup of dark roast coffee would complement the dessert.
In a word (or two) yummy, yummy. OMG this is “chocogasmic.
