City Tour of LA was fun. Especially the Rodeo drive, the street where Julia Roberts went shopping in Pretty Woman. It was an ultimate homage to fashion, facinating lables from Prada, Cartier, Gucci, Armani, Versace, Dior etc on either sides of the street displaying their expensive and exclusive goods. Though I did not buy anything there, I immensely enjoyed the window shopping. For a moment I felt was in shopping paradise 🙂
Continuing to be in the mood, I would like to share a heavely dessert – Chocolate Mousse!

You will need:
Egg Yolks : 2
Egg Whites : 4
Salt : a small pinch
Cream : 240 ml (1 cup)
Milk : 80 ml (1/3rd cup)
Sugar : 4 Tbsp
Vanilla Extract : 1 tsp
Chocolate chips or bar : 250 gms
Melt chocolate over a double boiler and keep aside.
In a small saucepan heat milk and sugar till they come to a boil.
Using a stand beater or hand beater, beat egg yolks till pale. While beating the yolks, slowly add hot milk in a very slow stream.
This is a very important step. So remember to add the milk very slowly or else you will end up with scrambled eggs.
Add in vanilla extract and whisk for an other minute.
Now add in melted chocolate and continue to whisk till well combined.
In a seperate clean bowl beat egg whites till soft peaks, add in salt and beat till stiff peaks form.
Add egg whites in three small batches to the yolk and chocolate mixture. Do not over mix it.
Now whisk cream till stiff peaks form and add again in batches to the chocolate mixture. Fold in gently. Do not over mix.
Pour the mixture into 8 medium sized cups, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for minimum 4 hrs or overnight.
You can even top it with fresh berries or fruit or whipped cream.
