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
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?
