Spicy Chocolate Mousse Bowls

{{totalReview}}
Chocolate mousse served in chocolate bowls? Sounds like a dream for any chocolate lover. My version of this classic dish includes cayenne pepper, which offers a spicy aftertaste that is surprisingly addictive for those who enjoy a little kick even in their desserts! Rich and creamy, this decadent treat is also suitable for a keto diet as I've substituted sugar with granulated erythritol. With this recipe, it's so easy to indulge this festive season!

Instructions

  1. Melt chocolate and make mousse bowls

    • Blow up the water balloons until they are the desired size (approximately 6-7cm) and wash them. 
    • Melt the dark chocolate either in the microwave or using a double boiler then add Swerve and mix well.
    • Let the chocolate cool down until room temperature when it becomes a thick consistency. 
    • Make sure the chocolate is not hot as it may cause the balloons to pop! 
    • Line a baking tray with parchment paper, and gently dip each balloon into the melted chocolate. Allow excess chocolate to drip off, then place them on the tray. If necessary, double dip the balloon in order to ensure the chocolate is thick enough to be a bowl. 4. Refrigerate the chocolate bowls until they are set. 5. Pop each of the balloons and peel them from the chocolate bowls, then return them back to the fridge while preparing the mousse.

    • Gently combine egg yolks and chocolate, then set aside. 
    • Whip the heavy cream, then fold it into the chocolate mixture.
    • Pour the mousse into the chocolate bowls, and let it set in the chiller for at least 30 minutes.
