Decadent Chocolate Mousse...and The Weekend That Was...

....what a week and what a weekend I had last week! I was running on auto-mode, not having the time to think at all, it was just do, do and do! Anyway, Khadijah is now safely tucked in Intec, a college under MARA that prepares students for various courses overseas. The whole idea about her continuing her Alevels in Taylors with the scholarship in hand was not working, so we abandoned ship! We sent her to register and check in her flat yesterday...alhamdulillah, she should be starting her classes today!

We have not had any cousins nephews or nieces getting married lately, but last Saturday we attended hubs' niece's wedding reception at Dataran was a nice family reunion before we see each other again on the first day of Syawal!

So, last night I made some macaron shells and before I slept I made this Chocolate Mousse with the leftover yolks which whites I used for my macarons. by the way, I delivered a box of hantaran macarons for an Instagram friend who is in Sungai Petani but here to fethc his bakal tunang who came back from the UK. Life is great, technology rocks!

40g egg yolks
30g castor sugar
30g water
170g dark chocolate melted, I used the last bits of Belgian chocs that I got from Sunlik
300g heavy cream, whip to soft peak 
I added half a tsp of vanilla extract, too!

1.Beat egg yolks till pale and frothy.
2.Bring sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan to about 118C. I didnt use a thermometer, just make sure your sugar syrup leaves a sticky mark on the side of the pan, when you tilt the pan.
3.Whip the sugar syrup into the egg yolks. Whip to the sides of the bowl is cool
4.Fold melted chocolate into the mixture, it will form a thick and gooey sauce.
5.Fold one third of the whip cream into the mixture to loosen.
6.Fold the rest of the whip cream until well this point you can stop and enjoy this dessert, but best to chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
7.Pour into desired containers, and chill ya! 

This recipe is from Su, the owner of Delectables, I got this recipe from her blog, The Journal Of A girl Who Loves To Cook.

.....habis...and there is something about digging in into a pot of creamy, smooth and decadent just calms you down and take your breath away!

...and here are some photos at the kenduri and Khadijah's new bed!
