Chocolate Mousse


My family enjoyed this decadent Chocolate Mousse very much. I like how the flavors from the Cointreau, espresso, and chocolate comes together. I really can’t think of a word to describe the taste of this mousse, so, I guess you simply have to make it yourself to know what I mean. :-) Do try the recipe.


Recipe adapted from Patsy's Cookbook-Classic Italian Recipes

Chocolate Mousse
(Printable Recipe)

Ingredients

1 ¾ Cups Heavy Cream
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp Confectioners’ Sugar
1 ¼ Cups (10 oz) Semisweet Chocolate Morsels
2 Tbsp Coffee-Flavored Liqueur (such as Kahlua, Tia Maria, Marnier or Cointreau
2 Tbsp Brewed Espresso
1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature
1 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
1 Extra-Large Egg

Method

Combine the cream, vanilla, and sugar in a large, deep bowl. Using an electric mixer or a hand beater, whip until soft peaks are formed. Refrigerate and reserve.

In the top of a double boiler, combine the chocolate morsels, coffee-flavored liqueur, espresso, butter, and granulated sugar. Cook over gently simmering hot water, stirring, just until the chocolate has melted and all the ingredients are combined. Remove from the heat.

Whip the egg in the top of a double boiler until foamy and fold into the chocolate mixture. Gently fold the reserved whipped cream into the mixture. Spoon into a serving bowl, or dessert dishes, and refrigerate for 4 hours, or until chilled and set.

Serves 4 to 6

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
