My husband loves chocolate. Really loves it. He doesn’t consider something a real dessert if it doesn’t feature chocolate. So when I told him that this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was Chocolate Mousse he said, “Finally!”.
This mousse is really quick to “whip” together. Start to finish in maybe 20 minutes (as long as the eggs are room temperature). Dorie suggests adding a flavor while mixing in the egg yolks, and I chose to add vanilla.
We loved this chocolate mousse. I served it with lightly sweetened whipped cream, and we felt it was essential to the dish.
My husband declared this his favorite French Fridays recipe. When I reminded him of all the other dishes he has really liked, he said that if they were all lined up in front of him, he would eat the chocolate mousse first. I made the mistake of telling him how quick and easy it was to make, and he requested it again the next night (unfortunately for him, we did not have all the ingredients on hand, though he offered to go get them). I have a feeling I will be making this one often!
