Somewhere between a cake and a mousse, this totally decadent dessert requires no baking and no flour. It is therefore closer to a very rich foam. A texture that melts instantly in the mouth. It is essential to make this recipe in “bite-size” version! Or in a terrine, cut into thin slices. A guilty pleasure, but so good!
Recipe for chocolate decadence:
-250g of dark chocolate
-190g of soft butter
-125g powdered sugar
-1 tablespoon of milk
Melt butter with chocolate and milk in a double boiler or in the microwave.
In another bowl, mix the powdered sugar and the yolks (two on the picture because I made the recipe in a smaller proportion).
Whisk them to blanch as much as possible.
Add the yolk-sugar mixture to the chocolate-butter.
Whisk the egg whites until they are stiff.
Gently add the whites to the chocolate.
Pour the mixture into molds or a bowl. I use silicone molds for this recipe, so I can unmold them afterwards.
Chill the pan in the fridge, then, when the texture is firm, put in the freezer (to unmold, you’ll have to freeze!) for an hour or two.
One hour before serving, soak the mold in hot water for a few seconds .
Turn out gently.
Then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Enjoy well chilled. Decadence melts in your mouth right away!
