Chocolate Mousse01

Sometimes, unexpected things would happen to get in the way of our daily routine. This dessert was made to cheer my daughter up as I hadn’t had enough time to cook dinner for her before she went out the other day. She missed her favourite pumpkin soup and favourite pasta. Before she dashed out the door, I promised to make her this chocolate mousse.

Chocolate and cream are wonderful partners, that work so well with a spirit-boosting result. It’s a quick dessert. What I need to do is to whip up the cream and egg white, then combine all the ingredients, chill in my fridge. Then the dessert is ready to serve at any time. She's very happy with the reheated soup and pasta, followed by the chilled chocolate mousse.

Notes : 
  • If the mousse is put in the freezer, it’d quickly be set in 15 to 20 minutes. 
  • When beating cream or egg white, the utensils, including the mixing bowls and beater have to be very clean. Make sure there’ll be no trace of oil or egg yolks.
