Last weekend my job was to bring a dessert to a friend’s wedding shower. I thought I had been handed quite a daunting task. I knew that if I was going to serve dessert to a group of women in Los Angeles that it would have to be in mini portions. Perfect.  No problem. What better way to end a meal than with a rich, creamy, chocolatey mousse.  Any three ounce vessel will work for the mini portion.  Being the Mama that I am, it made me very happy to see that everyone had finished their desserts.

Mama’s Tips:

  1. Do not get any egg yolk into the egg whites, or stiff peaks will not form.
  2. Make sure all bowls and utensils used to whip egg whites are grease-free, or stiff peaks will not form.
  3. Do not get any water into chocolate, or the chocolate will seize.

Recipe: Intermediate
