Happy Friday everyone! I thought I would take this Friday morning and get you excited about your weekend; how about a REAL chocolate martini? This is a super easy, SUPER delicious dessert that you can make for that special someone! Might also be an idea to tuck this recipe away for the big V-Day coming up! I promised I wouldn’t even say the word until February, but if you’re having troubles figuring out what I mean- it’s on February 14th!
So here are the picture steps to the recipe, the ingredient list is below! Go forth and keep your fingers out of the mixerer!!
Weigh out your three chocolates of choice…
Chop the chocolate starting with the lightest color first…
Once chocolate is chopped, boil the heavy cream and divide evenly among the three chocolates. Let the hot cream sit on top of the chocolate for two minutes and then whisk together (by hand) the chocolate cream sauce until a smooth liquid. Allow the three chocolate mixtures to cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for at least one hour or until ready to serve.
Once the chocolates are cooled and ready to be plated, remove from refrigerator and one by one whisk the mixtures with an electric mixer on high. Whisk until stiff peaks form.
Go ahead and scrape the whipped mixture back into it’s refrigerated bowl while whisking the others. Also in the same manner as chopping, whisk the chocolates in order of the lightest color first. This way you don’t have to use three whisks!
Once finished whipping up the different chocolate mousses, spoon in the martini layers and garnish with any leftover mousse on top! I happened to have a few cherries on hand and thought they also looked the part! Have fun with the decorating, and most importantly, enjoy!
