Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Line bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan with ladyfingers. In the top of a double boiler over hot water, melt the chocolate chips, stirring frequently. When the chocolate has melted, mix in the 2 eggs thoroughly.
  2. In a large bowl, whip the cream until it is thick. In a separate large bowl, with a clean whisk, whip the whites until stiff but not blocky.
  3. Add 1/3 of the whipped egg whites to the melted chocolate and fold in. Quickly add this to remaining whites and fold in. Fold in the whipped cream until no streaks remain, being careful not to overmix.
  4. Pour mousse into the cake-lined pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.

I should have cut the ladyfingers in half because the filling reached half the height of the cookies.

This is a very easy and tastey chocolate mousse. I've made many chocolate mousses with the ladyfingers, but none were this easy. I could not find ladyfingers any stores, so instead I used th...

Wonderful recipe. I though I messed up but the result was still good. My mistake was to beat the heavy cream and the egg whites too much. It made them hard to integrate to the chocolate mixture....
