Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 12

1/2 Pound(s) Sweet chocolate
3 Tablespoon(s) Water
1/4 Cup(s) Sweet liqueur, amaretto
Grand Marnier
2 Cup(s) Heavy cream
6 Tablespoon(s) Sugar
Whipped cream for garnish
Grated chocolate for garnish
Cut the chocolate into 1/2-inch pieces and place the chocolate in a
saucepan. SEt the saucepan in hot, almost boiling water and cover. Let
melt over low heat. 2. Put the yolks in a heavy saucepan and add the
water. Place the saucepan over very low heat while beating vigorously
and constantly with a wire whisk. Experienced cooks may do this over
direct heat.It may be preferable, however, to use a metal disc such as
a Flame Tamer to control the heat. In any event, when the yolks start
to thicken, add the liqueur, beating constantly. Cook until the sauce
achieves the consistency of a hollandaise or a sabayon, which it is.
Remove from the heat. 3. Add the melted chocolate to the sauce and
fold it in. Scrape the sasuce into a mixing bowl. 4. Beat the cream
until stiff, adding 2 tablespoons of the sugar toward the end of
beating. Fold this into the chocolate mixture. 5. Beat the whites
until soft peaks start fo form. Beat in the remaining sugar and
continue beating until stiff. Fold this into the mousse. 6. Spoon the
mousse into a crystal bowl and chill until ready to serve. When ready
to serve, garnish with whipped cream and grated chocolate. Recipe By
