Damn, That's Kosher: Mousse Au Chocolat

For dessert, if you really want to impress someone, this parve chocolate mousse should definitely be in your repertoire of tried and true recipes. It can stand alone, or for a dairy meal, be topped with a dollop of whipped
cream. This recipe is from Craig Claiborne in the New York Times Cook Book, 1961.


  • 1/2 cup (6 oz.) of Parve semi-sweet Chocolate chips $2
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 tsp boiling water
  • 2 large eggs, separated $1.50 for 6 eggs
  • 1 tbsp rum or other liqueur $10 for 750 ml

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Put chocolate chips in a processor or blender, and chop finely. Scrape the sides of the bowl. Add boiling water and process for 15 seconds. Add the egg yolks and rum or other liqueur and blend until smooth.
  2. With a standing or portable mixer, whip egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Fold the chocolate mixture gently, but thoroughly into the egg whites. Spoon into 2 dessert dishes.

This looks quite tasty. If I may offer a suggestion, it looks like the price of rum accounts for 75% of the cost of the recipe. If you want to trim down on the cost and still end up with a tasty mousse, why not use vanilla extract? While it’s not technically in the Brokeass Gourmet $50 pantry, most people keep it around for baking.

And, if you do need to buy a new bottle, you can get high quality extract for less than $4 (instead of 10).

That said, if you aren’t as broke-ass, a dark rum or a nice liqueur would be great! In fact, if you aren’t particularly broke-ass, this looks like a recipe where the flavor of the chocolate that you use will really come through, so spend the extra few dollars you save using vanilla extract on a high quality chocolate — Ghiradelli’s double-dark chocolate chips ($3) are excellent — not always parve, though. The large bars of Scharffen Berger are usually parve, but that will bring the price up a bit.

This chocolate mousse looks so delicious! I wonder if some of the australian essay writing websites have put the recipe of this mousse up on their sites. I don’t think that would have happened and for all the right reasons.
