Uh-oh: A typo in a previous post!

27 Jan

Oh dear, a loyal reader just informed me of a typo in my post with the Chocolate Mousse recipe. My original directions called for 1 16-oz package of chocolate chips, and it should have been 1 6-oz. package of chocolate chips! I have corrected it in the blog, so if you want to make this wonderful and easy recipe, it is now correct. And I apologize to anyone who tried to make it with the original instructions!

Here is the corrected recipe:


1 6-oz. package semisweet chocolate chips
⅓ cup boiling water
4 eggs, separated
2 Tbs. coffee liqueur (or another liqueur that goes well with chocolate)
½ tsp. cinnamon


In a blender, or with an immersion blender, mix the chocolate chips and boiling water for about 10 seconds. Add the egg yolks, liqueur and cinnamon and blend another 5 seconds. Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites until no streaks or lumps of white are visible. Spoon into dessert dishes or a 1-quart serving bowl. Chill for one hour or more. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Serves 4 to 6
