Disney Recipe: Mousse au Chocolat from Boulangerie Patisserie Les Halles

Now, see? I write ONE little post about my favorite Disney Park restaurants, and suddenly I’m craving all of my favorites from Walt Disney World!

After answering the question What is your favorite restaurant in each park?, suddenly I’m dreaming of allllll the other places I’d eat today in Walt Disney World if I could!

And since I can’t, it’s time to drag out the recipes! Today we have something fairly easy, but with a big WOW factor — Mousse au Chocolat from Boulangerie Patisserie Les Halles in Epcot’s France Pavilion.

(The recipe we are sharing is from the former Patisserie Boulangerie, but it’s simple and divine. The presentation is different, but it still tastes delish.) :-)

Mousse au Chocolat

Boulangerie Patisserie Les Halles, Epcot

Yield: Approximately 3 cups

5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar

1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over warm water. Remove from heat.

2. Combine egg yolks and cream and gradually add chocolate, stirring rapidly. Add vanilla extract.

3. Beat egg whites with sugar until stiff peaks form.

4. Gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture. Spoon mousse into a decorative mold or individual serving glasses and chill until firm (about 2 hours).

And that’s all there is to it! It’s so easy to make this light, yet rich dessert, so why not surprise someone special with it — or make a treat for yourself?

    Oh AJ, this is a nice little gift that you’ve given us…thank you so much! Unfortunately, we just had a mini blizzard with a polar vortex settling into our area (so all of the snow isn’t going anywhere), so it may be a little while until I can get out to get some whipping cream. But, when I can I will certainly get some cream and make this wonderful little treat. :)

    They had the best chocolate mousse! Believe me, I tried every chocolate mousse I could find in the parks (including the “moose” at Le Cellier).

    I got this on a trip in 2009 with my family. It was amazing! Part of it probably has to do with the story below. But nevertheless, I will have to make this soon. Disney food brings back so many memories. Speaking of which I think it’s time to bust out some Bengal Barbeque recipies…

    Mom and Dad wanted to go back to EPCOT for Illuminations and my 3 younger sisters wanted to stay at the hotel and swim. Well I wanted to see fireworks so I got to be an “only child” for the night. (A big deal as the oldest of four, especially at Disney!) We arrived early becuase mom wanted dessert from the bakery in France and I wasn’t complaining! I love chocolate so it was a no brainer to get this. It was so wonderful and rich I couldn’t finish it all. Being the nice big sister that I am, I took it back for the younger 3 to finish. THey all decided that it wasnt’ worth missing the swimming for, but they were so wrong!
