We adore cooking. We crave chocolate. We love our blenders. And we are addicted to easy gourmet recipes.
As any good belle will do, we feel it IMPERATIVE to share this chocolate mousse. It was handed down and has withstood the test of time. Well, perfection usually does.

What you’ll need:

1/2 lb good quality semi-sweet chocolate, melted (we’ve been known to use dark in these modern times and for the sake of health)
8 large eggs separated
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup powdered sugar
A pinch of salt
A shot of cognac (or not!)

Place all ingredients EXCEPT egg whites into blender. Blend for 1 minute.
Add egg whites and blend for 3 minutes.

Pour into compotes, pot de cremes, bowls or your mouth (just kidding) and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Should make 10-12 compote servings

And that is it. A true masterpiece in a skinny minute!

Now it wouldn’t be such a bad thing to accessorize these babies with some whipped cream and some chocolate shavings. Or even a chocolate covered coffee bean. But if your spoon gets in the way we will totally understand.

A special treat for all of your sweethearts…or just for yourself 😉

Belle-icious plain or dressed. Y’all decide.
