Water-Based Chocolate Mousse

Everyone who’s ever worked with chocolate knows, that if there accidentally comes a drop of water into the chocolate it is ruined!

So, how is it possible to make a chocolate mousse based only on chocolate and water? Well, it is easier than you might think and something that everyone can make.

When that it said, there are a few thing that you need to keep in mind when considering this recipe 1) as the mousse only contains chocolate and water, it don’t get the exact same consistency as a mousse filled with eggs or cream, 2) it has a very concentrated chocolate taste, and you will only need a spoonful or two to get satisfied, and 3) as it has this very concentrated chocolate taste, it is important that you use a good quality chocolate.

I alway use chocolate from Amedei, as it has a clean and fabulous taste (and it don’t contains any artificial additives). I will recommend every to try this chocolate at least once in their life 🙂 And remember, you get what you pay for – good quality chocolate is more expensive than bad quality chocolate, but it is also much better and you don’t feel the need to eat as much, as your senses get satisfied when they taste good quality.

 

Ingredients (4 servings)

1/2 cup quality chocolate (preferably Amedei Toscano Black or similar)

1/2 cup

16 Raspberries

1 tsp. caramel with sea salt

 

Cold water

20 ice cubes

1 tsp. salt

Hand-mixer

Dishtowel

Slowly melt chocolate and water in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

While the chocolate is melting, you can prepare a bowl with cold water, ice cubes and salt. The bowl needs to big enough, so the the bowl with the melted chocolate can stand in it, while whipping it into a mousse.

Place the bowl with the melted chocolate and water, in the larger bowl with ice water. Use a hand-mixer to whisk the melted chocolate into a mousse. Whisk until it has the same texture as a whipped cream.

Fill the mousse into 1 large or 4 small glasses and fridge until serving.

If you don’t want chocolate all over the kitchen, it is a good idea to cover the bowl with a dishtowel while whisking 🙂

Fill the raspberries with good sea salt caramel, and place on top of the chocolate mousse 🙂
