Godiva of a Chocolate Mouse....

So, I've been sick the last few days. Just starting to eat things now. My hubby bought me chocolate pudding. But after seeing that Godiva has chocolate mouse recipes...ONLINE...I'm not sure the store bought pudding is going to cut it anymore. Here's one of the recipes. Happy cooking everyone this weekend. Enjoy!

Chocolate Hazelnut Pots De Crème:

    * Yield: 6 servings
    * Difficulty: *Easy
    * Preparation: 30 minutes plus chilling time

1 cup half-and-half
3 bars (1.5 ounces each) Godiva Dark Chocolate, broken up
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons Frangelico
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sweetened Whipped Cream:
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons Frangelico

1/2 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

Make the Chocolate Hazelnut Pots de Crème:
  1. Combine half-and-half, chocolate and sugar in small heavy saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat for 10 minutes or until the mixture reaches a full boil and thickens.
  2. Gradually stir about half of hot chocolate mixture into beaten egg yolks. Stir egg yolk mixture into remaining hot chocolate mixture. Cook and stir over low heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in Frangelico and vanilla. Pour chocolate mixture into six pots de crème cups, demitasse cups or soufflé cups. Cover and chill for 2 hours.

Make the sweetened whipped cream:
  • In a chilled bowl, beat cream with sugar and Frangelico until soft peaks form, using electric mixer at medium speed.

  • Garnish each pot de crème with a dollop of whipped cream and chopped hazelnuts.
