Try this interesting Chocolate Mousse recipe. This easy dessert has a new kick to it you’ve probably never tried out – curry! Watch how to make here.
Today you will be making a Curry Chocolate Mousse! This dessert has a new kick to it you’ve probably never tried out – just wait and see how great the curry goes with the chocolate!
This chocolate mousse recipe is a nice twist on your classic chocolate mousse and you’ll be using coconut milk and maple sugar to sweeten it.
The first thing you need to do is get the main ingredient of this easy dessert ready, the chocolate! For this, you will be using dark chocolate, curry powder, and cocoa powder to make the chocolate nice and rich, and finally some coconut milk to make your chocolate mousse creamier. First add in your chocolate to a pot and then add in the coconut milk. Then, as you put it on a little heat, add in your cocoa powder.
Bring the temperature up a little until the chocolate is all melted and your ingredients begin to really blend together. Finally you can add your curry powder to taste. Make sure to add your curry powder in little by little because some types of curry powder can be a little more flavorful and spicy than others. Leave your chocolate blend at a steady temperature and go back to your prep station.
Here you will crack your eggs into a bowl and add the maple sugar, a natural sweetener. Whisk the eggs and sugar and once it’s ready bring it back to the stove top and warm the eggs and that way they can cook so you don’t get any raw eggs in your chocolate mousse! Place the bowl over a water bath and continue whisking so your chocolate mousse is light and airy.
By now, your chocolate should be completely melted and all of the spices will be combined evenly throughout. Before adding your chocolate to your eggs, let it cool off a little bit. Meanwhile, beat your eggs and sugar until it thickens and almost reaches the consistency of whipped cream.
Then you can add in your chocolate to your eggs and sugar. The dark chocolate that you’ll be using is great not only because of the strong taste, but also because it comes with plenty of health benefits like antioxidants.
When you’re ready to serve the chocolate mousse, pour it into wine glasses or any serving dish that you’d like! Once the chocolate mousse is in its serving dish, you need to let your mousse chill for a couple of hours to set – once cooled it’ll taste delicious!
Finally, last but not least, you’re ready to move on to make the garnish! Colombe garnishes her chocolate mousse with pineapple, a simple garnish that adds in an extra sweet flavor. Cut your pineapple into circles and cut these into triangle slices. This chocolate mousse recipe will not let you down the next time you want to make a homemade dessert after a meal!
- 6 oz. dark chocolate
- ¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons mild curry powder
- 4 large eggs
- ¼ cup maple sugar
- Pineapple to garnish
InstructionsCombine the chocolate, coconut milk, and cocoa powder in a small heavy bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir until the chocolate begins to melt, then add the curry powder bit-by-bit, tasting as you go. (Each curry powder has a different potency.) Then remove from the heat and stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Stir in the rum. Combine the eggs and maple sugar in a bowl and whisk together by hand. Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water and stir gently and thoroughly, scraping the bottom frequently, until the liquid is hot to the touch (160 degrees). Remove the bowl from the heat and mix with a hand mixer. Beat until the mixture has a consistency like whipped cream (about 5 minutes). Pour the chocolate mixture into a medium bowl. Stir one-fourth of the egg mixture into the chocolate. Then fold in the remaining egg mixture one-third at a time. Pour the mousse into eight ½ cup bowls or ramekins. Refrigerate until chilled and set, at least 2 hours or overnight. Garnish with pineapple slices and enjoy.

[SOUND] You're watching Eating by Heart.
00:00:04.043 --> 00:00:06.920
I'm Colone and today we're
making a curry chocolate mousse.
00:00:10.320 --> 00:00:12.960
It's a nice twist on your
classic chocolate mousse and
00:00:12.960 --> 00:00:16.220
we're using coconut milk and
maple sugar to sweeten it with.
00:00:16.220 --> 00:00:19.160
let's get our chocolate part ready.
00:00:19.160 --> 00:00:21.070
I'm using dark chocolate.
00:00:21.070 --> 00:00:25.620
I'm using curry powder and
cocoa powder to give a little bit of added
00:00:25.620 --> 00:00:29.300
richness to the chocolate flavor,
and I'm using coconut milk.
00:00:29.300 --> 00:00:33.270
First, we're gonna add our chocolate and
to that we'll add our coconut milk.
00:00:35.340 --> 00:00:38.830
And I'll bring our curry powder so
we can add it to taste.
00:00:38.830 --> 00:00:40.650
So first I'll add the cocoa powder part.
00:00:43.190 --> 00:00:47.030
Let's just bring that temperature up
until the chocolate is all melted and
00:00:47.030 --> 00:00:49.380
I can combine everything together.
00:00:49.380 --> 00:00:52.410
And finally we'll add the curry
powder bit by bit because some
00:00:52.410 --> 00:00:57.040
curry powder is a little bit more
flavorful and spicy than others.
00:00:57.040 --> 00:00:59.205
So now while that's happening,
00:00:59.205 --> 00:01:03.467
we're gonna come back over here and
crack our eggs into the bowl.
00:01:09.887 --> 00:01:11.490
And add the maple sugar.
00:01:11.490 --> 00:01:15.370
I like to sweeten with natural sweeteners
as much as possible, it's a lot healthier.
00:01:15.370 --> 00:01:17.419
And I'm gonna go ahead and whisk this.
00:01:19.840 --> 00:01:24.770
I'm gonna bring this back over to the
stove top, and I'm gonna warm the eggs.
00:01:24.770 --> 00:01:28.888
And that way they become cooked and
you don't have raw eggs in your mousse.
00:01:28.888 --> 00:01:30.410
Here we go.
00:01:30.410 --> 00:01:35.590
Gonna put them over a water bath,
and just whisk, whisk, whisk.
00:01:35.590 --> 00:01:37.270
Once this is warm, we're gonna whisk it.
00:01:37.270 --> 00:01:41.649
To bring lots of air into it, and
make the mousse a lot lighter and airier.
00:01:41.649 --> 00:01:48.090
We want the chocolate to be completely
melted and all of the spices combined.
00:01:49.240 --> 00:01:53.490
Now we wanna let this cool a little bit
before we add it to the egg mixture.
00:01:54.640 --> 00:01:56.809
Time to beat the eggs and the sugar.
00:01:56.809 --> 00:02:02.250
[SOUND] You wanna get
a lot of air into this so
00:02:02.250 --> 00:02:05.680
it thickens a little bit.
00:02:05.680 --> 00:02:09.340
So it can almost have
the consistency of whipped cream.
00:02:09.340 --> 00:02:10.990
I'm gonna slowly add my chocolate.
00:02:12.730 --> 00:02:14.670
And using dark chocolate
makes this dish so
00:02:14.670 --> 00:02:17.440
much healthier because you have
the antioxidants from the chocolate.
00:02:18.520 --> 00:02:19.210
Just about ready.
00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:22.180
I like to serve this in wine glasses,
00:02:22.180 --> 00:02:26.070
you can use ramekins, any dishes
that you like that you have around.
00:02:26.070 --> 00:02:27.960
And now, let's see.
00:02:31.550 --> 00:02:34.550
And now we're ready to chill our mousse
for a couple hours until it's set.
00:02:34.550 --> 00:02:36.570
And it's gonna be delicious.
00:02:36.570 --> 00:02:39.330
Our mousse has set beautifully and
now we get to make the garnish.
00:02:39.330 --> 00:02:41.559
So I'm garnishing with pineapple.
00:02:41.559 --> 00:02:46.820
A simple garnish just for
a little extra flavor and freshness.
00:02:46.820 --> 00:02:52.440
So I just make circles and
then I cut my circles into triangles.
00:02:55.540 --> 00:03:01.505
I just do one little slit in the middle.
00:03:01.505 --> 00:03:02.870
00:03:02.870 --> 00:03:05.100
And it goes right on the edge of my glass.
00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:07.950
Isn't that pretty?
00:03:07.950 --> 00:03:08.965
All right, so now I get to try.
00:03:08.965 --> 00:03:13.510
00:03:13.510 --> 00:03:15.830
Such a delicious sweet ending to any meal.
00:03:16.930 --> 00:03:18.990
And I love the undertones
of the curry powder.
00:03:20.540 --> 00:03:22.943
Thanks for watching Eating By Heart
