A recipe for Julia Child's Chocolate Mousse. Follow the simple recipe instructions for Julia Child's Chocolate Mousse shared by other home cooking experts.


Ingredients

8 oz. Sweet or semi sweet baking chocolate, melted with 1/4 c. Strong coffee

3 oz. Unsalted butter (6 Tb)

3 Egg yolks

1 c. Heavy cream (make sure it's the heavy variety)

3 Egg whites

1/4 c. Instant (finely ground) sugar

OPTIONAL: Whipped cream

Directions


Beat the soft butter into the smoothly melted chocolate. One by one, beat in the egg yolks. Beat the cream over ice until it leaves light traces on the surface. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. While beating, sprinkle in the sugar by spoonfuls and continue beating until stiff shining peaks are formed. Scrape the chocolate mixture down the side of the egg-white bowl, and delicately fold in the whipped cream. Turn the mousse into attractive serving bowls. Cover and chill several hours. You may wish to decorate the mousse with swirls of whipped cream, or to pass whipped cream separately.

I was looking up this recipe online to make when I was away from home. The above recipe is not the classic Julia Child recipe for chocolate mousse, so I'm confused. The classic recipe calls for rum or another liquer (I use triple-sec)and does not use heavy cream at all. While this recipe may be good, this is definitely a different recipe version from the one that everyone raves about from her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Just so you know...
