Ingredients

  • 1 box Signature Swiss Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Heavy cream
  • 8 ounces Chocolate. You can use bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, depending on how sweet you want your mousse to be. If you want to use bittersweet chocolate, you can always add sugar.

  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • TO DECORATE:
  • Mascarpone cheese
  • One bar of dark chocolate
  • Peppermint leaves
  • A few dry cranberries

  1. TO MAKE CAKE:
  2. Follow the instructions on the box, adding one teaspoon of vanilla during mixing.
  3. Bake, then allow to cool.
  4. TO MAKE MOUSSE:

  6. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler.

  8. Add the vanilla and remove the mixture from the heat.
  9. Add a scoop of the whipped cream to the chocolate mixture and stir it in.
  10. Whip the egg whites and salt until they form stiff, white peaks.
  11. The chocolate mixture should now be slightly warm, not hot. Fold the chocolate into the rest of the whipped cream.
  12. Fold in the egg whites. Stop folding as soon as there are no longer any white lumps. Cut strips of aluminum and put it around the cake leaving 6cm, this will help to shape the chocolate mousse.

You need glaze and all You have is hard frosting, add a little hot coffee and stir . the hard frosting becomes smooth and pourable, just a little works wonders and then refrigerate to harden it up, so it stays on the what ever You poured it on and it makes a semi hard shell .


Silky-Smooth Chocolate Sauce

Silky-Smooth Chocolate Sauce

Chocolate sauce can turn grainy. You can prevent this if you melt the chocolate in a saucepan over very low heat. Or melt your mixture in a 1-cup glass measuring cup in your microwave on HIGH for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes; stir to ensure chocolate is melted.
