This week, I was charged with making a Top Secret Chocolate Mousse.
So can someone please tell me what the secret is?
Yes, it was an epic fail week for me.
My TWD Buttermilk Muffins were a flop.
And my mousse. Was. Not. Magical.
But it was not meant to be.
I wanted to chuck the bowl across the room.
But I quickly realized that I was the one who would have to clean the chocolate mess off of white tile floors.
I quickly changed my mind about that.
The Karate Kid told me not to stress out - "Everyone has bad days, mom."
Yes, some days the child-parent relationship juxtaposes.
So, there is no mousse to share this week.
Besides, I need to go pack and make cookies.
We're headed off to go watch Runner Girl in NCAA regionals - 200 miles away... It would be criminal to not show up with a treat for her to take back to school. (Buttered popcorn cookies via The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook).
This post participates in French Fridays with Dorie. Next up - goat cheese mini puffs. I am kind of psyched about those...
As people share their "secrets", I thought I would add them in - sort of a "mousse tutorial".
1) Make sure your eggs are room temperature
2) Make sure you don't let your chocolate cool too much
3) Don't make mousse while mercury is in retrograde
