Chilli chocolate Mousse










The people follow my blog these years know me that Im not really typical in my recipes, but always inside of the classic and yummy recipes (always tasted) and here all tasted and are really critical (sigh)  so when I find this recipe in Good to know UK (really is a recipe from Weight Watchers).
All this is about the chilli thing in the mousse, (anyway is only 1/2 teaspoon) and really good well with chocolate.
Believe me:)


Ingredients
(6 serves)

80 grams of Dark chocolate  
broken into pieces
4 heaped  teaspoon cocoa powder (without sugar)
4 tablespoon of water
 2 medium eggs separated
1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder
2 tablespoon caster sugar
some cherries
(fresh or canned)

PD :These cherries are the first (and I think the only ones)
from my yard and always think in a dessert would be beauty.
But the birds are really enjoyed them (more than us) well all in the earth is to sharing LOL


Method

Put the chocolate pieces into a heatproof bowl and place over a sauce pan of gently simmering water until melted.

Blend the cocoa powder with the hot water, then add  to the chocolate and stir really well until smooth.
Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
Beat the eggs yolks and stir into the chocolate mixture. Replace the bowl over the saucepan of simmering water and cook gently for about 5 minutes stirring until thickned.
Remove from the heat and stir in the chilli powder.
Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then add the caster sugar and whisk again until glossy.
Fold through the chocolate mixture using a large meatl spoon.
Share between 6 small glasses and top with a cherry .

Mousse de chocolate








Los que me siguen hace un tiempo saben que dentro de lo clásico me gustan  las recetas originales o un poco diferentes.
Porque ademas gozo probando algo nuevo o diferente.
Además todas las recetas por supuesto que son probadas en mi casa que son MUY críticos (son un poco gourmet sobre todo mis hijos).
Me gustó esta receta de mousse de chocolate un poco distinta con un poco de ají en polvo (solo un poco) y queda maravilloso, por el sabor del chocolate es increíble que se puede probar con otras cosas y siempre es un plus.
Esta receta viene de un sitio que me gusta mucho Good to know recipes.UK.
creanme que  es delicioso:)

  33. I love chocolate puddings, pots de creme, etc! This one looks wonderful, Gloria, and I love the addition of the little touch of chili. I'm sure it makes the chocolate even more delicious :)

  40. But Glori, muchacha, that's the point. You don't have to be a poet yourself. You can just poems by othr people. Please, join the fun and surprise us with a Neruda, Mistral or Nicanor Parra

    "Yo soy el Individuo.
    Primero viví en una roca
    (allí grabé algunas figuras).
    Luego busqué un lugar más apropiado.
    Yo soy el Individuo.
    Primero tuve que procurarme alimentos,
    buscar peces, pájaros, buscar leña
    (ya me preocuparía de los demás asuntos..."

    Y me encanta el mousse de chocolate. :-)
