My favorite dessert! :D Chocolate Mousse.

For my bridal shower, Anna Baer, a really good friend of mine gave me this "game" for my Nintendo DS called Cooking Personal Trainer. Summer semester was a crazy semester and I never had the chance to use it. So now that I have time I decided to give it a try. The recipe I picked was Chocolate Mousse, which is my favorite dessert. The "game" is amazing! It gives you all the ingredients, the steps and it will guide you through each one of those steps! If you don't have the ingredients ot will let you do a shopping list. It has explanations and terminology! :) So awesome! You can pick recipes by country, ingredients or just by doing a search! Unfortunately there are no Brazilian recipes. :( But I have done a Scandinavian Beef Hash that was pretty delicious and the chocolate mousse was the second one I tried! It turned out GREAT! Yummmm. I took pictures of the ingredients! Here is the recipe:
(4 servings)
INGREDIENTS:

3 Egg Yolks
2 Tbsps Heavy Cream
4 Tbsps Sugar
3 Egg Whites
5 oz. Dark Chocolate

STEPS:
Preparation:
1. Chop the dark chocolate finely
2. Mix the heavy cream and the yolks together
Cooking:
3. Pour water into the saucepan and heat to around 124º F over low heat
4. Put the chocolate in a mixing bowl and place the bowl in the hot water
5. Using a rubber spatula, stir the chocolate as it melts, then remove the bowl from the heat.
6. Continue to stir with the spatula, and add the egg yolks and cream little by little to the melted chocolate.
7. Put the egg whites into a mixing bowl and whisk them briskly. (Until it is white and fluffy)
8. Add the sugar.
9. Continue to whisk, mixing in the sugar. (Until the mixture is thick enough to form firm peaks on the surface when the whisk is lifted)
10. Add a third of the egg whites to the chocolate and mix them in throughly with the spatula.
11. Add half of the remaining egg whites and fold them into the chocolate.(Fold: This method uses a gentle motion to fold air in with egg whites, ensuring that they do not lose their foamy texture.)
12. Add the remaining egg whites and fold them in, taking care not to fold the air out of them.
13. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it to set in the refrigerator.

SERVING:
14. Fill a bowl with warm water, and place the spoon in the water to warm.
15. With the warm spoon scoop the mousse into a serving dish. Yum yum! Enjoy!

I hope you guys like it! :D Delicioussss.
