K eyed this recipe with some suspicion. "Mama, what is Marquise au Chocolat?" "Basically K, it is a frozen chocolate mousse." "Okay, I'll make that."
So make it we did, chopping and melting chocolate with butter over a pot of simmering water and allowing it to cool before adding our sugar and egg yolk mixture. Next up, one of K's favorite kitchen tasks, the whipping of the heavy cream. Finally, the chocolate mixture was folded into the cream, before being scooped into a loaf pan and frozen. As you can see above, if you don't fold completely, you may end up with a white streak or two in your finished product. It will taste just fine anyway.
The verdict: Another hit. Although we are more fruit than chocolate lovers, we'll be making this again. K loves frozen treats of all sorts and I appreciated being able to keep the leftovers in the freezer for a party later in the week. We'll make this again, though next time may add the suggested cookie crumbles.
