"Instant" Chocolate Mousse - Cooking Live

Author/Submitted by: Cooking Live Show #CL8931
Servings: 6
Categories: Chocolate / Desserts / Mousses

1  pound  bittersweet chocolate
1  cup  heavy whipping cream
2  tablespoons  dark rum, optional
4    egg whites
1/2  cup  sugar

    chocolate shavings

1. Cut the chocolate finely and set aside.

2. In a saucepan, bring the cream to a boil and remove from heat. Add the chocolate and let stand a few minutes; whisk smooth and pour into a large bowl. Whisk in the liqueur and cool to room temperature.

3. In a mixing bowl, combine egg whites and sugar and place over a pan of simmering water, whisking constantly, until egg whites are hot and sugar is dissolved. Whip on mixer until cooled and risen in volume - do not overbeat until egg whites are dry.

4. Fold meringue into chocolate mixture, and place in bowls or glasses. Garnish with chocolate shavings just before serving.
