1 2/3 cups heavy cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
6 oz. dark chocolate, melted and cooled to room temperature
In a large mixing bowl, beat cream, vanilla and salt until soft peaks form; set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use. In another large mixing bowl, beat egg whites to soft peaks. Add sugar to soft whites; beat to stiff peaks. Drizzle melted chocolate into egg whites; fold until nearly incorporated. Fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Divide mousse evenly between 6 serving dishes. Chill completely in refrigerator before serving.
Good to Know:
- To melt chocolate, microwave it on 50% power in 1 min. increments until smooth (about 3 min. total).
- If you are concerned about consuming the raw egg whites in this recipe, try substituting pasteurized eggs.
