Curry Chocolate Mousse

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!

 

Ingredients
  • 6 oz. dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • Pineapple to garnish
  • ¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons mild curry powder
  • ¼ cup maple sugar
Method
Combine 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.
