A few weeks ago while in California I was lucky enough to be at Estelle’s house when she made Chocolate Mousse. I couldn’t wait to try it again on my own.
Much like this picture, my success was limited. Ok….I failed. Both at the mousse and the pic. But I still endorse the recipe.
I used 1 bar of milk chocolate and 1 of dark. I think that was ok. Where I think I went wrong was adding peanut butter. My end result was really kind of grainy and had an off texture that Estelle’s version did not have. I am blaming the Peanut Butter.
Another issue was my blender. I have a super charged blender and I think I over blended the mixture. When Estelle made it the mouse was light and fluffy and mousse like within 30 sec. Within 30 sec mine was pretty much a thick liquid that never fully set up.
I will try this again for sure. I know the recipe is a good one and an easy one….next time I need to follow it with no additions, and maybe try my food processor verses my blender.
