Chocolate Mousse (Mom's Quick Recipe)
Robert Dekeersgieter, Spirit of the Ethan Allen III, Burlington, Vermont
4 egg whites
4 tablespoon granulated sugar
7 oz. milk-chocolate (I prefer Callebaut)
Separate egg whites in a hand blender bowl. Always make sure bowl is very clean.
Whip with the sugar until firm peaks form. The home test was to hold the bowl upside down over someone's head (my mom used to ask for volunteers).
Melt chocolate au bain marie (water bath).
When melted, add to the whipped egg whites and refrigerate.
This whole process takes about 3-4 minutes.
