Ingredients

  • 3 1/2

    ounces dark chocolate, chopped

  • 1

    tablespoon butter

  • 2

    tablespoons water

  • 1/8

    teaspoon ground dried chipotle pepper

  • 1

    tiny pinch salt

  • 2

    large egg yolks

  • 2

    tablespoons water

  • 1

    tablespoon white sugar

  • 1/2

    cup heavy whipping cream, chilled

  • 1

    tablespoon heavy whipping cream,chilled

Directions

1. Bring a saucepan of water to a simmer over low heat. Place chocolate, butter, 2 tablespoons water, ground chipotle pepper, and salt in a heatproof bowl; set bowl over the simmering water. When the butter melts, whisk the chocolate mixture gently until smooth and shiny. Set aside to cool for a few minutes. 2. Whisk egg yolks, 2 tablespoons water, and sugar in another heatproof bowl over the same pan of simmering water until egg yolk mixture is foamy and hot to the touch, about 3 minutes. Pour hot egg mixture into warm chocolate mixture, whisk until smooth, and set over a bowl of ice to chill. Whisk constantly until mixture has cooled to room temperature or slightly cooler. 3. Pour 1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon cold cream into a chilled metal bowl; whisk until cream holds soft peaks. Place about half the whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture; gently fold the cream into the chocolate. Repeat with remaining half of whipped cream, folding gently until nearly all the streaks have disappeared. Divide mousse into 4 6-ounce ramekins. 4. Cover each ramekin with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours (up to overnight) before serving.
