Have you ever had an Aero chocolate bar from Nestle? Yes, the one that's full of tiny air bubbles? That's the image that came to me the moment I tasted this Chocolate Mousse. I don't want to sound rude, comparing Dorie's "Top Secret Chocolate Mousse" recipe with a mere mass produced chocolate bar, but this is the fluffiest mousse I've ever made!
Off course, the meringue did the trick and even though mine slightly separated (I blame the tiny drop of water that went into the mixer while I was washing my hands and my huge stage fright cooking in front of my mother in law, in her kitchen non the less) the mousse came out quite presentable and exquisitely ... yummy!
I mean, you cannot go wrong with the taste of this mousse! As long as you use good quality dark chocolate and fresh eggs you are going to end up with a luscious yet light mousse. I went with Dorie's "original" recipe and made no extra additions... chocolate and egg yolks, egg whites with a pinch of salt and a little bit of sugar...simple and delicious!!
