Recipe by Veronika Tikhomirova

Do you want to become Julia Child for a day and make an incredible French chocolate mousse using her recipe? Now you have a chance, and trust me, this will be the best chocolate mousse you ever tried in your life!

  1. Separate 4 eggs into egg yolks and egg whites. Cover egg whites with plastic wrap and set aside.
  2. Put egg yolks in a mixing bowl and, using a whisk, beat it very well for a few minutes until they become lighter in color and thicker consistency.
  3. While you are whisking the egg yolks, put strong coffee and sugar in a sauce pan and heat it on the stove until all the sugar dissolves.
  4. Gradually add the coffee and sugar mixture into egg yolks while constantly whisking the egg yolks so they won’t cook.
  5. Put a mixing bowl with egg yolks mixture over a pot with steaming water and constantly whisk the mixture for about 7-10 minutes until the mixture gets thick and pale color.
  6. Put this thick and pale egg yolks mixture in the stand mixer bowl and beat it for 5 minutes. It should become even thicker and more pale.
  7. In a separate bowl whisk together melted chocolate and softened butter until smooth consistency. Add melted chocolate mixture to the egg yolk mixture and fold it.
  8. In a separate bowl put egg whites, salt and cream of tartar and, using a hand or stand mixer, beat it until you have stiff picks formed.
  9. Fold it together with egg yolk/chocolate mixture until smooth.
  10. Divide the mixture between 4 serving glasses and refrigerate.
  11. As an option, serve the chocolate mousse with a tablespoon of whipped cream.
