During Moose in the City’s street exhibit the Holiday Inn on King offered exciting moose accommodation packages, complete with moose droppings (chocolate covered almonds, that is) on your pillow! Although the moose have migrated, the Holiday Inn on King would still like to invite you to try their succulent Swiss Chocolate Mousse recipe – a smash hit during this summer’s moose season!
Swiss Chocolate Mousse
Beat egg yolks and sugar together over double boiler until sugar dissolves (approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute). Whip mixture until it becomes thick and pale yellow in colour.
Whip cream and set aside.
Melt butter and add marshmallows. Heat until marshmallows melt (do not let them turn colour).
Melt dark and milk chocolate over double boiler.
Spoon half of whipped cream into melted chocolate and mix well.
Add melted marshmallows.
Add sugar mixture to chocolate mixture and fold in the rest of the whipped cream.
Pipe or spoon chocolate mousse into serving dishes. Chill in refrigerator for 1-2 hours before serving.
Optional: Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint.
