Even in restaurants, chocolate mousse seems to be nothing more than chocolate pudding.
This recipe is the real thing. It is not difficult to make but your taste buds will be delighted with a melange of flavors - chocolate, coffee and citrus. And what an aftertaste!
The chocolate: Melt the chocolate with the kahlua and the gran marnier in the top of a double boiler. Set aside.
Blend: Put the whole eggs and the yolks, vanilla and sugar in a blender and mix at medium speed for 3 minutes. Add the cream and mix until smooth. Finally, add the chocolate mixture and mix in completely.
The Finish: Pour the mixture into 6 serving containers (I like to use wine glasses but small cream pots are fine). Refrigerate for 6 hours or more. Mousse should be well set.
Csution: Don't worry that the portions seem small. This is a very rich dessert. This recipe cannot be successfully doubled. If you need more, make two batches.
