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

Baking Instructions

  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:
  5. Use an electric mixer to whip the heavy cream until it forms soft peaks.
  6. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler.
  7. Beat the egg yolks well with a fork. Slowly add them to the chocolate mixture.
  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.

Tips

Fat-Free Sour Cream for Regular Sour Cream

Fat-Free Sour Cream for Regular Sour Cream

You may make this substitution, however you will notice a difference in taste. Instead, try yogurt or use half oil and half sour cream. Let your palate decide for you!


Non stick Moisturizer

Non stick Moisturizer

When you are handling any kind of dough........rub just a tad of olive oil on hands & fingers so that the dough does not stick to you and you'll be moisturizing your hands at the same time with the wonderful results of olive oil.
