These delightful treats combine creamy mousse with a frozen shell for a delicious and refreshing dessert. Today, we’ll guide you through the sweet technique of making frozen mousse bombes that will wow your taste buds and leave everyone asking for seconds.
The Ingredients You’ll Need:
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups whipped cream
- Assorted toppings (chocolate shavings, fresh berries, etc.)
- In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it starts to steam. Remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for a minute, then whisk until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, egg yolks, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined. Slowly pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from cooking.
- Transfer the mixture back to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.
- Once cooled, gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until well incorporated. Be careful not to deflate the whipped cream.
- Line individual bombe molds or a large bombe mold with plastic wrap, making sure there is enough overhang to cover the top. Pour the mousse mixture into the mold(s), smoothing the top with a spatula.
- Cover the mold(s) with the plastic wrap and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight, until completely firm.
- To serve, remove the frozen mousse bombe from the freezer and gently unmold onto a serving plate. Peel off the plastic wrap and decorate with your favorite toppings like chocolate shavings or fresh berries.
