to make a desert (DO NOT READ IF HUNGRY. IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE)

afternoon all.
i'm after making a chocolate mousse,and i want to know if any of you
guys or your parents make one using just chocolate and thick cream,
or do you really need to make it from egg whites.
many thank s if you can help.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Willow- This is the recipe that I have always used:

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Whipped cream

Directions
  1. In a small heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with water over low heat; stir until smooth. Stir a small amount of hot chocolate mixture into egg yolk; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Cool, stirring several times.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Fold in cooled chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

UHG - this sounds so good right now - too bad I can't cook -

my exhusband thought I was trying to kill him when he got food poisoning 4 times in 3 months right after we got married... In all fairness I warned him, but he thought I was joking.

I even screw up grilled cheese sandwiches - seriously!

Could I screw up chocolate pudding cups with canned whipped cream on top??? hmmm...

Thanks Willow!! Now I WANT PIE!!!
