Disneyland's Chocolate Mousse

5 stars from 1 rating of Disneyland's Chocolate Mousse

It is February once again which means two things: it is the shortest month of the year and Valentine's day will be here before you know it! It is the most romantic day of the year for some people and for others they hate it! Valentine's day is consumed with flowers, cards, and sweet notions. There are those of you who go all out with fancy dinners and there are those of you who like a really laid back day with that someone special. Wether you are planning on celebrating Valentine's day or not, this mousse is sure to make you swoon! This decedent dessert is served at the Blue Bayou restaurant inside Disneyland. The Blue Bayou is a very nice, romantic place to eat in the park but truthfully I normally go there for the dessert (and the atmosphere). This restaurant is also on the expensive side. Unfortunately I don't always have money or time so I was thrilled when I found this recipe! It is super fast and easy to make and a great way to end the night. Nothing goes better with Valentine's day than chocolate (even if it is just for yourself)!

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups bitter sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Instructions

  1. In a double broiler combine chocolate and butter, stirring until melted.
  2. Whip the heavy whipping cream and sugar until light and fluffy. Set aside.

*TIPS*

  • Don't have a double broiler? No worries! You can use a saucepan and a mixing bowl (make sure it is big enough so when you set it on top of the pan there are no gaps and sits well. Also I prefer a metal bowl.). Add water to the sauce pan about a third full. Wait for the water to boil. Meanwhile add your ingredients to the mixing bowl you are going to use. Then place the bowl on top of the pan and mix until well combined. Careful when removing the bowl because it will be hot!
  • While the water is boiling I whipped the whipping cream and the egg white-sugar mixture. This way once the chocolate was ready all I had to do was mix everything together.
  • Be careful when mixing the butter and chocolate together that it doesn't burn. If you start to smell it burning a little just remove the double broiler from the heat and continue to stir. The water in the pan will still be hot enough to still melt the mixture.
  • When combining the chocolate mixture with the whipping cream make sure you mix it well but be careful not to over mix. The chocolate will sink to the bottom of the cream so i suggests gently folding it in from the bottom on the bowl and then mixing with a wire whisk towards the end!
  • Before refrigerating overnight fill the mixture in the cups you are planning on serving in. This way they are ready to be served right away and it will be less of a mess!

Serving options!

Since it is very near to Valentine's day I would recommend serving this delicious dessert in cute glass custard cups with a side of strawberries, raspberries, or even some ice cream! Don't want anything on the side? Then my personal favorite way to eat the mousse is all by itself! Drizzling some chocolate syrup or pureed raspberry sauce is a good way to go too! I used white porcelain ramekins to serve mine in! No matter how you choose to serve it, this mousse is light and full of chocolaty flavor and once you start eating it you won't care what it looked like to start with!

Have you ever had the chocolate mousse at the Blue Bayou in Disneyland?

      Hello Better Yourself!

      It is very delicious! I know how you feel...I use to always feel the same way when a recipe called for a double broiler and I didn't have one! When my grandmother told me about this trick I was so happy!

      This looks incredibly delicious! Thanks for sharing the tip for if you don't have a double burner I was worried I wouldn't be able to make it.
