This chocolate mousse is made of 2 ingredients: Chocolate and water, the rest is in the skill…
I must confess that it took more than one attempt to obtain an enjoyable result…..
It is based on the chemical fact that mixing a mass containing 34% fat and water, creates a stable emulsion. So, final proportions will change depending on the amount of cacao content – and therefore fat percentage – of the chocolate you use.
For example, two 70%, 100 gr chocolate bar will have roughly 90 Gr fat. By adding 175 gr of water at the correct temperature, will create 265 gr of Vegan chocolate mousse.
- Melt the whole chocolate with the 175 Gr of water until you obtain a silky looking mass. This may require mixing for up to 4 minutes.
- Separately, place a bowl in an ice bath (like a double bath but over ice, instead of hot water)
- Quickly pour the melted chocolate in the cold bowl and start whisking forcefully for up to 5 minutes, or until you obtain the fluffy texture of a chocolate mousse.
To thicken the “mousse” you can add more hot chocolate melted in water.
Place in individual ramekins and enjoy!!
