Rich dark chocolate mousse--a classic French recipe

I realized I had a lot of eggs the other day, so I made chocolate mousse.  I got this recipe at French camp from the French counselor who taught French cooking one summer.  I actually translated it myself to be published in the camp "yearbook" in English!  Amandine, I think was her name, didn't like listing the recipe out in clear numbers and steps.  She cooked more by feel and it was hard for me to get her to spell everything out.

She showed us how to make delicious mousse but I have never been able to get my egg whites quite as stiff as she did... sigh... anyway see in the picture, I don't have any ramekins so I used these wine glasses my grandma gave me, very vintage...

Classic Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients:
  • 10 oz chocolate (just shy of a bag of chocolate chips) 
  • Splash of milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 5 eggs, separated
Directions:
  1. Melt chocolate and milk in a saucepan.
  2. Separate egg whites and yolks.  Mix the yolks and sugar with the chocolate, then sift in flour.
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  4. Very delicately, fold the whites into the chocolate.
  5. Put into ramekins or a bowl and refrigerate 4 hours or more.

    make sure that the egg whites are room tempature -- and you can add a bit of cream of tartar to get stiffer peaks!
