    This was an epic fail for me :-( Still can’t figure out where it went wrong.

    I am hoping to see lots of lovely desserts this week…

    This makes me sad, Cher. I’ve made it a bunch of times, and it’s one of my faves. Don’t think I’ll be making it this week, as I have no electric mixer–stand, hand, or otherwise, and I’m too lazy to whisk that thing into submission with brute strength. Wish yours came out better!

    I was rushing and didn’t let my eggs come to room temperature before whisking the yolks with the melted chocolate. You can probably guess what happened: they seized up the chocolate! Room temperature is key!! (Room temperature whites will also beat fluffier.)
    I salvaged it a bit and did up with four custard bowls after mixing in the egg whites, but that was a lesson in frustration. I have more eggs out coming to room temperature … the recipe is simple enough to try a second time for better results.

      I did the same thing. I managed to save them and get a decent mousse going, but I’m not entirely sold. It was too rich for me. Husband loved it though!
