There are times in my cooking adventures when a recipe calls for just the egg yolk, and we’re left with egg whites that we don’t want to throw away, but what do we do with them? I’m pleased to share with you what do with these little blessings!
Enter chocolate mousse. That’s right- this once intimidating and elegant dessert is so easy you’ll wish you had known how simple it was years ago!
The entire family enjoys these, and it really is a great dessert to serve to guests… But I confess: I like to make them and hide them in the fridge so I can snack on them after the kids go to bed. Can you blame me? Give them a try yourself and then let me know!
