Hi friends! Tonight felt like a chocolate-mandatory night, so here’s an orange-kissed chocolate mousse recipe inspired by BLISS. I hope it will help you find yours…
Rich, sensual, and totally lickable… Serafina knows a certain Israeli stud-muffin she’d like to slather in this mousse. You can use it however you desire…
In a cold bowl, whisk together:
1 2/3 cups cold heavy cream (more if you’d like some for garnish)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract or 1 tsp vanilla bean scrapings
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Beat until solid (but not all the way to butter!) then chill.
In a bain-marie, melt:
3 oz semisweet chocolate
3 oz bittersweet chocolate
Once melted, add ¼ tsp orange flavoring (optional)
In a stand mixer (or by hand if you’re brave):
Whisk 4 room-temperature extra-large egg whites to soft peaks.
Slowly add 1/2 cup sugar while whisking and continue until whites are shiny and stiff peaks appear.
Very gently fold melted chocolate into egg white mixture, then fold whipped cream into all (reserving some for topping if desired). Chill at least one hour, then enjoy with your hottie!
Thanks to Syna for the recipe and perpetual joie de vivre.
