Chocolate mousse inside chocolate cups



Don't waste cups-make edible cups! Yeah, I have to admit that the chocolate cups fascinates me because the concept is fascinating , you are making your own supply, how cool! Of course the most important is what these cups are caring inside, which in this case is an extremely delicious and creamy mousse with liquor and ground hazelnuts. I prefer mousses that doesn't contain gelatin, like this one, without gelatin the mouses maintains most of its creamy texture and it is quite impressive how thick it gets only from the egg yolk mixture I made; I didn't even had to cool it to thickens, it happened instantaneously.
I'm not sure if I like the  similarity look between these cups and cupcakes, specially because these cups are way more elaborated than a cupcake! Maybe next time instead of using mini cupcake liners as a mold I'm going to use a balloon (yes, balloon) like a  mini one and at the end I just have to pop it and remove the balloon from the chocolate.




Ingredients:
for chocolate cup-
170g bittersweet chocolate (I used 60% cacao)
for mousse-
130g bittersweet chocolate
2 large egg yolks
2 tbsp confectionary sugar
1 1/2 tbsp water
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup ground toasted hazelnuts (if you don't know how to toast and peel hazelnuts watch my chocolate tart video)
2 tbsp Amarula liquor or Hazelnut liquor (I used rum but it didn't taste as good)
optional: chopped toasted hazelnuts on top or cacao powder

plus: mini cupcake paper liners

If you don't have a pastry bag just spoon the mousse inside the cups. If you don't feel like making the cups (shame on you=) spoon your mousse inside a nice glass you have and it will also look fantastic.

  1. Funny timing! I was going to make chocolate cups last night and fill them with a caramel mousse, but I ended up making a Citrus Olive Cake instead. These look beautiful - and tasty! ;)

  4. your videos are lovely and this recipe is divine but with the pale pink font, i can barely read the recipe. (i hope you're not insulted- it's a lovely color but readers might not be able to read it against the white background. just an fyi : p

  5. @ sweetie
    Hi, I do understand your point . from my home the color is totally readable but there were times when I was on somebody else's computer that I couldn't read it =(
    I'm gonna darken the color a little bit and see if it looks better but you can also darken your monitor too cause monitors too bright are bad for your eyes. I'm sorry and hope the change makes it better for you =)

  8. Fabulous recipe, fun and descriptive video once again. Loving your blog and looking forward to the next post already. Remember I made your chocolate tart with a hazelnut crust a few weeks ago? I am taking part in a bake sale for Japan with it on The Tomato Tart. The auction is tomorrow. So wanted to let you know we are helping Japan together. Thanks again for the recipe. http://www.thetomatotart.com/recipe/online-bake-sale-japan/
    P.S. I recently saw the chocolate cup balloon trick and thought it was a great idea. But your cups are super fancy.

  19. Hi
    Thanks for your recipe! I can't believe how easy the chocolate cups were. Definitely going into the regulars. One problem though, I couldn't get my mousse to get stiff enough. I don't know what I was doing wrong. I whipped my cream as much as possible without curdling. They still tasted really great though. I'm trying your macarons tomorrow :)
    Thanks

  28. Oi Raiza! Percebi que você é brasileira, então resolvi comentar em português mesmo ^^

    Gostaria de tirar uma dúvida, heavy cream seria creme de leite ou creme de leite fresco?

    1. Blend the egg yolks, powdered sugar and water. Melt the chocolate (au bain marie), get your cups and put the chocolate in them, don't forget to do the side's as well, when you're done doing this put them in the fridge. Mix the egg mixture 6minutes with handmixer au bain marie. When you're done doing that mix it 3 extra minutes with the electric mixer. Then put the egg mixture with the chocolate and mix with the handmixer (idk if you call it that btw). Mix the cream till you get a good texture, when you're done with that. Put the cream in the egg/chocolate mixture but in 3 parts. 1st part mix, 2nd part mix, 3rd part mix (mix with a spoon) when done, take your choclate cups out the fridge take them out the cupcake forms. put the mousse in a pastry bag and squirt in the chocolate cups, of you don't have a pastry bag spoon it in the cup. Optional : make the chocolate cups with white chocolate. You can also put white chocolate curls on the mousse. You can also put sprinkles on the mousse, hope it's understandable since english isn't my first language :)

  41. Hi,
    Did you use mini cups?
    And how many cups did you use?
    Does the mousse needs to rest in the fridge after making it? If so how long?

    1. the mousse doesn't need to rest, in fact in may get too hard to pipe if you refrigerate ;)

  42. how much chocolate is 170g chocolate?

  43. How much is 130g of chocolate?
    Can i not add hazelnuts? If i dont, does that change the mousse' consistency by a lot?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's a little less than 1 cup (when the chocolate is chopped). Don't worry about the hazelnuts, it is totally optional ;)

  51. Has anyone tried to use silicon cupcake liners for the cups? Does anyone think that would work?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello, I think it could work but you'd have to brush a thicker layer of chocolate since the silicon is less delicate then the paper cups ;) Good Luck

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I love it too, you can do the EXACLY same thing as I did in this recipe but instead of using chocolate you use the caramel (you don't need to make the cups). The best caramel to use is the milk caramel (dulce de leche) because it's thicker and it gives a nice body to the mousse.

  57. Hi Raiza for some reason I'm not able to view the video. Could you please send the method across, it'll be really nice :)
