mint milk chocolate mousse

Okay, this should be Double-Mint Milk Chocolate Mousse and Gelée, but I just don’t think gelée is good, and nothing will convince me otherwise. So this is just Single-Mint Milk Chocolate Mousse and, even though I don’t have that cool layered effect that gelée would have given, it is fabulous!

There is really something quite special about chocolate mousse. It isn’t particularly hard to make, but it is so luxurious, and it really fixes a chocolate craving. I used up a lot of my random milk chocolate bits and pieces for this, so that was also quite satisfying. I usually have fresh mint on hand in the summer because I like it with all the summer fruits and vegetables, but if you don’t have it to steep your cream for the mousse, I don’t see why you couldn’t use peppermint extract. This mousse uses just egg whites and no yolks, which I thought was unusual, but it makes it nice and fluffy, and I had absolutely no issues polishing off a tall glass!

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Yeah, i followed the recipe (for once) and really could have done without the gelée. The mousse, on the other hand was AMAZING! Already plotting a remake (and an orange version!)

  2. Looks great – thanks for sharing their recipe.

  3. I love the look of your mousse cups. I made the gelee and didn’t, mind it, but the majority are in agreement with you.

  4. The mousse was delicious and my family is in total agreement with you about gelee!

  5. Yours look so inviting…and decadent!

  6. This looks amazing!!

  7. I am looking forward to this chocolate fix dessert. I am going to try the gelee for kicks.

  8. Love this flavor combo – how decadent!
