Italian chocolate mousse

Being the good glutton that I am, every Easter I give myself perhaps an excessive amount of chocolate eggs and, as I think you will  understand, most of them were left over. Unfortunately at my house it always ends up like this: we buy truckloads of chocolate every
Easter and then waste it waiting for months.

The result? It deteriorates and we are forced to throw it away. So this time I decided to change this mean tradition and reuse the leftover chocolate in an
amazing recipe. If you find yourself in the same situation as me, try to reuse it by cooking this phenomenal mousse: easy to prepare, composed of a few ingredients and definitely enveloping to the taste.

I fell so much in love with it that I will surely prepare it for any special occasion and, as I was elated by it, I hope it will be the same for you. I’m sure that from now on I will never again dare to let chocolate deteriorate!

Curiosities about chocolate

Dear ladies, do not be afraid of this food so greedy but not very recommendable reputation. It has a thousand beneficial properties that deserve to be known because it is not only delicious, but also healthy!

First of all, as it is known, chocolate gives a great quantity of energy, allowing us to fight even the hardest days. But if this can instill a certain fear, know that according to a study 40 grams of extra dark chocolate per day, combined with a healthy and balanced diet, can help you lose about 10% more weight than normal.

In addition, its smell is as inviting as it is relaxing, in short, a real meditation food! Continuing, it is rich in antioxidants, so it helps to fight cardiovascular diseases,
and it is also a panacea for the memory: in fact, it chases drowsiness and increases concentration. Let’s face it, what’s better than chocolate?

Ingredients
 
 

  • 125 ml fresh cream for desserts
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 75 ml fresh cream for desserts cold from the fridge
  • Fresh strawberries to decorate
  • Icing sugar to decorate

Instructions
 

  • To prepare this creamy chocolate mousse you will first have to heat in a small saucepan over
    low heat the 125 ml of cream, but without boiling it.
  • In the meantime, break the dark chocolate into very fine pieces. When the cream is ready turn
    off the heat and melt the chocolate inside, then place the pot in the refrigerator for about 5
    minutes.
  • At this point, whip the 75 ml of cold cream and cut the strawberries into small cubes.
  • Then add the previously whipped cream with the help of a spatula, remembering to mix from
    the bottom up to avoid disassembling it. If the mousse is too liquid, place it in the fridge for a
    few minutes before serving.
  • Then fill a sac-à-poche with the mousse, place a few teaspoons of strawberries on the bottom
    of your glasses or bowls and fill with the chocolate mousse.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and, if you like, decorate with more strawberries.
