Mousse Au Chocolat



Christmas songs hv been playing non stop and i hv yet to get our christmas tree.. i think its been 4yrs since we last used a "fake" one.. i much prefer the live tree.. it gives that wonderful pine smell around the house tho it means i have to vacuum the floor twice as much.. oh well.. its ok.. u cant hv all the good things in life without having to work extra ey..

So some hv requested me to show what i got at LV.. i am sorry but i cant do that.. its just weird showing off things like that.. i much prefer to share what i got associated to say.. baking stuff and kitchen gadgets like this one below hehhe.. my new coffee machine.. finally i got to take u home with me "George Clooney" ahaksss .. this sexy machine makes super super nice espresso.. i love it!! it is now sitting right next to my less than a year auto coffee machine :op (But its ok... they dont fight... they are both DeLonghi hahaha).



To be honest.. I think my 18kg of excess baggage comes mainly fm my baking chocolate.. i brought home with me a big carton box containing just baking chocolate and yes i think it will last me for a year lol.. am happy cos hb has no issue whatsoever when it comes to baking stuff.. he doesnt like it if i buy just a box or even one or two bars of couverture chocolate.. when i buy he makes sure i buy lots.. period..




When Vero told me that the best chocolate is not even Valrhona.. that most of the pâtisserie in France hv been using Cocoa Barry since it has been around since 1842.. I was literally sold.. (but whether it is really better is yet to be proven..)

So off we went to this small shop close to their house that carries mainly Cocoa Barry products.. they are only open twice a week (wed and sat) and i was lucky enough that we were there on one of the open days.. when we got to the shop.. i was like in la la land .. they hv different kinda of chocolate as in percentage wise.. they got ur typical praline.. they got ur baking and drinking cocoa powder.. they hv tempering powder.. they even sell callebaut barry mousse powder.. i was like.. geesshhh i wish i cud buy all of them but i cant.. we dont want any excess baggage do we hehe .. anyway i bought a few boxes of chocolate.. bought their cocoa powder and also their mousse powder.. i had asked my SIL to buy me Marmer couveture chocolate fm Vienna so that settles it.. i was a one happy woman that day :o) As it turns out the shop is not just - a shop. Its the retail outlet located right outside the Cocoa Barry factory!







Well ok enough intro abt my new found chocolate.. after 2wks of not having the chance to prepare anything in my kitchen.. I decided on this simple desert which u can prepare within 5 mins.. u need 200g of mousse chocolate powder.. u need 1/4 litres of milk.. whisk it using high speed for 5 mins and pipe it into ur desired mould.. cling wrap it and let it set for 2hrs .. this callebaut dark chocolate mousse is to die for!! yummehh




Note: U actually can get Cocoa Barry at Kitchen Capers here in Singapore!

After we got home fm that little shop in france kita terus google if this chocolate ade kat s'pore.. it says KC jual but i tak tahu lah if ade ke tidak.. the last time i saw cuma ade Valrhona kat sana .. probably cos thats what i was looking for when i last went there.. sekarang maybe KC carry cocoa barry too?

Any kinda mousse memang hot fav ku especially chocolate hehe
