chocolate mousse for Z

Aujourd'hui, je fait un post spécial en Anglais pour Z de Villigen en Suisse qui lit mon blog et qui a pris un intérêt certain pour ma mousse au chocolat. Sitôt demandé, sitôt traduit, ou presque. Et comme en plus hier matin j'en ai refait pour mon Gourmand de Mari, ça tombait bien, j'ai fait une autre photo.

You need :
150 grams of black chocolate (a pound : 3)
a few drops of water
3 bigs eggs or 4 smaller ones
25 grams of soft butter.
That's all !

In a nonstick saucepan melt the chocolate with water untill to obtain a smooth paste
add the egg yolks one by one
then the butter cut in small pieces
in a bowl whisk the egg whites untill they form peaks
and mix them very slowly untill to have a nice smooth mixture
verse it in ramekins and put them in the fridge a few hours.
Because my Husband likes well, I put cake noodles
Enjoy it !

Oooh, I feel so very special! Thank you SOOO much Claude! The simplest recipes are sometimes the absolute best!

But, what are cake noodles? I don't think I know them by that name...

In french we call it cake vermicelli because it looks like soup noodles. I can find it colored or all chocolate. The colored ones are most beautiful like decoration on a cake or in a cream.

You mean the decoration on the top? I think in the US, they're called jimmies or sprinkles. There's even a Wikipedia entry, search for "sprinkles" at the English version site. :-)

By the way, if you like chocolate, do you make chocolate fondue? I use the dark Toblerone chocolate, and strawberries and raspberries to dip in it. I think I might have to make some this weekend.

Ok for Sprinkles ! My husband likes much chocolate, me a litlle less. All I cook it's above for him. We did never try to make any chocolate fondue. May be Philippe can like but me I do not know ! Happy Week-end !

Interesting, usually it's the woman who likes chocolate more than the man! What is your favorite dessert?

Now I'm going to go look at your geraniums.

Z I like every dessert, with chocolate a little bit less. I avoid to eat because my figure does not like a lot. I eat yoghurts !
