Chocolate Mousse
February 11, 2013

Meowsandy it could be the type of chocolate or too much liquor. You need a certain amount of fats to balance your liquor or the chocolate will seize. Try a higher % cocoa butter in your chocolate (Ghirardelli is great) and maybe a dribble of butter or veg oil. Add the liquor only in the amount called for, or use instant coffe or coffe flavored drink mix. Also, use a double boiler and melt VERY slowly. Cook too fast and it will seize. Hope this helps you! As for the recipe, it was ok. It was more like a thick chocolate whipped cream than a mousse. I used it in my crepes, so it sufficed, but next time I will find another recipe.
