Love is big business. But today I want to feature a simple recipe - it doesn't matter if you have a partner, a friend, a spouse, or a child, that you want to show some love to. This is a simple dessert and not too heavy. It would make a nice parent and older child project, too, if you use something other than the bourbon or rum.
Valentine's Day Easy and Light Mousse. (Sorry, metric folks, I did not convert).
Note, this does have eggs in it.
In the meantime, melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in microwave. They will still look whole, but they are melted. Stir them. Then, combine with the liquid well. If desired add 1 tbsp of "Just Great Stuff" (powered peanut butter).
Beat your three egg whites, with 1/8 tsp cream of tarter, until stiff peaks form.
Then, gently fold in the chocolate mixture.
Divide into two (or four) dessert glasses, chill until nice and firm (perhaps two-three hours), and serve.
Yes, I know. I am using raw egg whites! Well, if this bothers you (one reason why I am using farm fresh eggs from a small farmholder), you can use pasteurized egg whites But it won't turn out as good, in my opinion.
Do you have a favorite dessert for Valentines Day?
