Title: Mint white chocolate mousse
Categories: Mousse, Usenet
Yield: 4 Servings
4 oz Chocolate, white
3 T Creme de menthe, green
1 c Cream, heavy
2 Egg whites
-(at room temperature)
Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. When melted, stir in the
creme de menthe. Let it cool a bit and stir in about 2 1/2 T of
cream. Let cool.
Beat the egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold the
chocolate-creme-cream mixture into the beaten egg whites. THE MORE
CAREFULLY YOU FOLD, THE LIGHTER WILL BE THE MOUSSE.
Whip the remaining cream, until soft peaks form. Fold the egg
whites-chocolate mixture into the whipped cream. AGAIN, THE MORE AIR
YOU PRESERVE, THE LIGHTER THE MOUSSE. Spoon carefully into small
bowls or cups and chill for about two hours.
* Sinful and light mint chocolate mousse -- This concoction is a
variation of another white chocolate mousse, which is a variation of
a dark rum chocolate mousse. It was invented for a friend's birthday,
which happens to be on St. Patrick's Day. We were sitting around the
day before, planning the celebration, and I offered to bring some
white mousse. Someone suggested it should be green, in honor of the
occasion. I came up with the perfect way to make green chocolate
