Chocolate Mousse



                                                      Not For Meeces

This is a rich and creamy, melt-in-your-mouth Chocolate Mousse recipe from the 70s.

From The Kitchen Of Ellen Templar

1 stick of real butter

4 squares semi-sweet chocolate

1 cup granulated white sugar

5 eggs

1 large container Cool Whip or any whipped cream – at least 12 ounces

Melt butter and chocolate together in double boiler

            Actually I do it in the microwave.

Add sugar to the warm butter/chocolate mixture and blend with wooden spoon

            Then blend more with electric mixer.  Mixture should be thick and grainy.

Add one egg and beat with electric mixer for 5 full minutes.  Continue adding one egg at a time and beating each egg for 5 full minutes.  Don’t try to mix all the eggs at once or it won’t come out right.

Mixture should be smooth,creamy and thick.

Fold in whipped cream and mix well with wooden spoon.  Then chill till firm.

Everyone loves this desert but it is very rich.  A small amount is plenty for each serving.  Because it is so very rich it can make you sick if you eat too much at a time.


Tuscan White Bean Stew, Ellen Templar:  This is a Mayo Clinic recipe and it's absolutely delicious! My son thought the second bowl was better than the first. The leftovers were just as yummy. I changed the recipe by subbing just white beans, did not mash any beans, added a bit more water, lots of garlic, cubbed ham and put it all into the crockpot for a day turning it into a crockpot soup. We didn't mess with the croutons. Definitely going to make this one again! If you make it, let me know how it turned out for you!
