Classic Chocolate Mousse By Reynold Poernomo Owner at Koi Dessert
CLASSIC CHOCOLATE MOUSSE SERVED WITH STRAWBERRIES AND HONEYCOMB
225g Dark chocolate 56%
3 Egg yolks
3 Egg whites
360g Thickened cream
Whip cream until it’s at medium peak and store in the fridge until needed.
In a stand mixer, whisk egg whites and sugar together to make a meringue.
Meanwhile combine egg yolks and sugar and whisk over a double boiler to make sabayon.
While whisking the sabayon, set up another double boiler to melt chocolate or melt in the microwave.
Once sabayon is glossy add in melted chocolate slowly. At this stage it will firm up a lot and look a bit odd and dry but don’t worry we’ll loosen it up and have no lumps.
Take off the chocolate base from the heat and whisk in ⅓ of the meringue at a time until it is all combined and is a smooth glossy batter.
Using a rubber spatula, fold in whipped cream in thirds until it is fully combined.
Pour into a jar or a bowl and set in the fridge.
Place honey, sugar and glucose in a pot and bring to a temperature of 175C.
Whisk in bicarb soda then as caramel rises, pour onto a lined baking tray.
Allow to set in room temperature before breaking into smaller pieces
Sprinkle the honeycomb over the mousse and serve with sliced strawberries then lightly dust with cocoa powder.
