- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
- 2 bars of milk chocolate
- 3 large eggs, separated
- 1/2 stick of unsalted butter
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tatar
- Fruits and toppings of your choice
Break up the chocolates into small pieces and put the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave the mixture in 20-second intervals, stirring between each bout of heat, until the chocolate is about 75% melted.
Let the mixture cool for a few minutes, then whisk in the egg yolks one at a time, mixing until smooth after each addition.
In another medium bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in 1/4 cup of the sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
Using a spatula, fold the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture until the mixture is uniformed.
In another bowl, beat the heavy cream until it begins to thicken up. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and the vanilla. Continue beating until the cream holds medium peaks.
Add the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. Gently fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, making sure not to mix any more than necessary.
Divide the mousse between 6 individual glasses, cover, and chill until set, at least 2 hours. Before serving, add your desired toppings on the mousse and serve.
