Orange Chocolate Scotch Mousse
Author Suzan Tisdale and I spent the day cooking in her kitchen near Peoria, Illinois. We made several recipes with a Scottish flare, including this incredibly silky and wonderful tasting Chocolate Mousse. Check out the video of us making it!
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
4 large eggs
1/4 cup Scotch whiskey
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
zest of 1 orange
1 cup heaving whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 TBS Scotch whiskey
2 large bowls
stand mixer and/or hand mixer
separate the eggs
zest the orange
Place the chocolate chips, Scotch whiskey, and 1/4 cup heavy cream in the top of a double boiler. Melt until smooth and shiny. Set aside.
Whip the egg whites until stiff peeks form.
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks until fluffy, then add the orange rind. Pour some of the chocolate mixer into the egg yolks and mix, then pour that mixture into the rest of the chocolate mixture. Fold together.
Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mix, being careful not to deflate the egg whites. Chill until cold.
FOR THE WHIPPED CREAM:
In a large bowl, mix 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 TBS Scotch whiskey, and the powdered sugar. Beat until thickened. Spoon on top of the individual mousse servings.
