recipes and chocolate

i wonder if i should be worried. see there seems to be a chocolatey theme to all the recipes i have posted. i'd like to set the record straight - i do make non-chocolate based things too. and i'll prove it. right after i post about the choclate mousse i made... this is basically the chocolate mousse from the cadbury website. there only difference was that i used 200g of lindt mint chocolate (as this was what i had in the cupboard). i had always wanted to try making mousse, and this was such a big hit. it made 10 of these teacup sized mousses (and believe me, that was really all you could eat). the recipe below is my version, based off the cadbury one.

Choc-mint mousse
125g cream cheese (note - don't buy the cheap stuff - my mistake)
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
200g (2 blocks) of lindt mint intense chocolate
600 ml of thickened cream, lightly whipped
  1. Beat the cream cheese, sugar and egg together until smooth.
  2. Break the chocolate into little bits and melt in the microwave.
  3. Add the melted chocolate to the cream cheese mixture and stir through until well combined.
  4. Stir in the cream, again stirring until well combined.
  5. Divide into 10 teacups.
  6. Pop in fridge for a couple of hours 'til chilled.
  7. Serve with strawberries...
mmm, chocolate mousse...

Wow, this sounds delicious! I love that it's served in a teacup. And I love that you don't have to separate eggs and whip the egg whites because I suck at that. I'm SO trying this (when I next have more than 2 people to try it on).

that looks awesome! You should list all your recipes in your side bar so that people can see all that chocolatey goodness and make them over and over :)

Great use of the teacup as a serving bowl too, it looks beautiful!

thanks guys! i am with you Gina, i was always put off by the eggwhite thing. hence the greatness that is this mousse. and a recipe side bar is a great idea! i'll sort that out soon...

I've not seen a mousse recipe without separating eggs before. I just adore using the teacups. I have tons of them gathering dust, this might just be a use for them
