To those who regularly visiting my blog, they know
I love food and to cook and bake. I'm such a glutton aint I?
So recently I've made my first chocolate mousse! And it tasted
so góóód! I could have just let it stay in a bowl and
scoop it up from there, but I wanted to make something
fancy so here you go: oreo base with chocolate mousse and
The kitchen looked so DIRTY. There were chocolate and
cream all over the place haha...I guess you can see the effort
and (fun) struggling I was having. This mousse is quite soft and fluffy
because of the gelatin, your spoon falls in so smoothly!
So if you decide to surprise your chocolateholic friend, go make
this chocolate mousse c;
Da Recipe (serves 4): 2 egg yolk, 30 gram sugar, 250ml/1 cup cream, 110 ml/ half cup milk, 4 Oreo cookies (crushed) + 1 tbsp melted butter, 150 gram pure chocolates, 1 gelatin sheet + some water, fresh fruit for garnish
Special tools: a round cutter, piping bag with round nozzle.
With the leftover eggwhite, you can make a facial masks, meringue. Macarons perhaps even?
Pretend this Oreo is your worst enemy and smasssh it!
This is where the real mess started really.
Sadly this one did not make it because of the baking paper that wasn't secured enough. Boo :c
1. Soak the gelatin sheet in water till it get soft (see picture). Combine the crushed Oreo's with the melted butter. Spread this on a baking sheet and cut round circles with a cutter. Let it cool in the fridge.
2. In the saucepan goes the milk and the soften gelatin, let it boil on low heat. Meanwhile whisk the yolk with the sugar till its creamy.
3. When the milk starts to boil, stir this hot milk into the egg mixture. Once everything is combined, pour it back into the pan and let it simmer for further combining. It should be creamy looking.
4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate. Allow to cool.
5. In a new clean bowl, whisk the cream really thick. With a spatula, fold this into the chocolate mixture.
6. Get your Oreo bottoms out of the fridge and piping bag ready and fill it with the chocolate mixture. With a round cutter, fold the baking paper therein (see picture) to create a mold. Secure the baking paper with a little bit of water/oil. This must be on top of the Oreo bottom.
7. Pipe the chocolate mousse in the baking paper.
8. Let it stiff in the fridge for atleast 1 hour.
9. Remove the baking paper, and garnish with your favorite fruit.
