Method for Dark Chocolate Mousse (filling for cakes):
Before starting this Dark Chocolate Mousse recipe, make sure you have organised all the necessary ingredients.
In a saucepan, pour the sugar and a little water (5 or 10 cl). Bring to a boil.
In the meantime, crack the whole eggs in the stand mixer recipient.
When the boiling intensity starts reducing, check the temperature with a laser thermometer. When the temperature is 121°C, take the pan away from the heat.
Beat the eggs in the stand mixer, then reduce the speed and gradually add the boiling sugar.
Increase to maximum speed and continue beating until cooled down completely.
At this stage, the preparation should have at least doubled in volume (this is called 'pâte à bombe'). Set aside.
In the meantime: Melt the dark chocolate over a bain-marie.
Once the pistoles have melted completely, remove from the bain-marie and set aside.
