Recipe: Valrhona Cabernet Chocolate Mousse
Wine Pairing: Hawkeye Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
A sweet pairing and personal favorite of the chef!
- 25 ounces of heavy cream
- 8 ounces of Valrhona Bittersweet Chocolate 61%
- 2 ounces of Kendall-Jackson Highland Estates Hawkweye Mountain, Cabernet Sauvignon.
In a medium size mixing bowl, whip 16 ounces heavy cream to soft peaks. Set aside.
Meanwhile, place chocolate in a medium size bowl. In a small pot, add 9 ounces heavy cream and bring to a boil. Once cream has come to a full boil, pour over chocolate and stir until smooth.
Allow the mixture to cool for 10 minutes. Add the wine and half of the whipped cream. Fold approximately halfway and then add the remaining whipped cream. Fold gently until incorporated.
Spoon the chocolate mousse into a medium size pastry bag. Pipe the mousse into any desired cup or bowl. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
