Easy Maine Chocolate Moose ( Mousse)

In our home, when my children request a dessert, they are appointed to help in creating that dessert. Plus I get to spend quality time with my child and it makes it fun and easier! So, today’s requested dessert is Easy Maine Chocolate Moose (Mousse). You only need six ingredients to make this tasty treat. Heavy Cream, Bittersweet Chocolate, Butter, Eggs, Coffee and Sugar.
Whip the heavy cream until peaks form.
Everything tastes better with heavy cream.
Try to resist sticking your finger in this.
Use a good quality chocolate such as Ghiradelli, it has a high oil content which makes it delicious.
Chop up the chocolate. Taste it to make sure it tastes okay.
Add butter and chocolate to a double boiler.
Add coffee to butter and chocolate.
Keep stirring until blended smooth.
Whip egg whites until foamy, add sugar.
Beat egg whites until peaks form.
To the cooled down chocolate mixture, add egg yolks. Blend.
Add one third of the whipped cream to the chocolate mixture, fold.
Fold in half of the egg whites to the chocolate mixture.Then fold in the rest of the whipped cream.
Fold in the rest of the egg whites.
Gently fold.
Now it really looks like Mousse, not a moose.
Use an icing bag to pipe in Mousse, or just spoon into a pretty glass.
Kids love doing this, they have more patience than I.
Perfect piping of Chocolate Mousse for your pet Moose or yourself.
