Nuage Chocolat – Chocolate Cloud

Love chocolate (photo: Sharon Heinrich)
My followers know I love chocolate very much: Chocolate cakes, chocolate cookies and everything related to chocolate. In a city where chocolate is revered as an art form, it’s as if it “flows” in the Seine River! One of my favorite desserts is chocolate mousse, which I discovered far before my culinary journey in Paris. 
Actually, the first time I tasted it was in my childhood when the chocolate mousse was sold at the neighborhood supermarket in plastic cups.  After one taste, I felt like I won the lottery! Over the years,  I have tried many chocolate mousse recipes, but this recipe is my favorite. It is very simple to make. With an airy and light texture, it is a dessert that leaves you wanting a second helping. You’ll be asking for more!

Chocolate Cloud

4-6 servings

100 g fresh milk
190 g dark chocolate, chopped 70%
25 g egg yolks (usually from 1 egg L)
175 g egg whites (usually from 5 eggs L)
40 g caster sugar

1. Heat the milk until simmering
2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave. 
3. Pour the hot milk over the chocolate in a bowl, stir to make a smooth cream. Set aside to cool.
4. Pour egg yolks into chocolate cream and whisk.
5. Beat egg whites with sugar until firm peaks form.
6. Fold egg whites into the chocolate cream. Fold through until incorporated (not too many folds).
7. Divide mixture between 4- 6 small glasses, or pour it into a centeral vessel. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
