Ingredients:

  • 4 egg yolks
  • cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 cup cold heavy cream
  • ½ cup freeze dried strawberries
  • 1 box Shari's Berries chocolate covered strawberries

Instructions: 

  • Place the egg yolks and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale yellow and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan until warm.
  • With the mixer on medium speed, slowly drizzle in half the warm cream and beat with the yolks until combined. Transfer the mixture to the saucepan and stir for 5 minutes, until thickened. Turn off the heat and stir in the chocolate. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours, stirring often.
  • Remove the mixture from the fridge and beat on medium high until soft peaks form and it resembles whipped cream. Fold the chocolate into the whipped cream until it is a smooth chocolate mousse. Spoon it into 4 bowls.
  • Crush the freeze-dried strawberries in a food processor or in a zipper storage bag until they are in powder form. Place them in a sifter and gently sift the strawberry powder onto the chocolate mousse.
  • Top with a chocolate-covered strawberry and serve!
