It's one of those desserts that you always find at Portuguese homes and at Portuguese restaurants, matter of fact it's the one dessert, other than Molotoff that I would always request when the family went out to eat.
It's super easy to make, it's delicious and fluffy and airy and just heaven in your mouth.
Here's how I make mine, been doing it for so many years. Thought it would be a nice dessert for our meal tonight to ring in the New Year.
Creamy Chocolate Mousse
1 can condensed milk
1 bar of milk chocolate (I like using the Hershey's Giant bars)
1 tablespoon of butter
Separate the egg whites from the yolks.
Add the yolks to a mixing bowl and pour in the can of condensed milk. Beat until creamy.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff.
Break the chocolate into small pieces, add to a microwave safe bowl, add in the tablespoon of butter and microwave for a minute. Remove and stir well until chocolate is completely melted.
Add the chocolate mixture to the egg yolk and condensed milk mixture, stir well to incorporate.
Fold in the egg whites, a little at a time until well combined.
Pour into a serving dish and top with some slivered almonds. (you can omit those if you don't like them, but I love them on the mousse)
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
That's it, nothing to it. Enjoy :)
