780- Chickpea Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse / موس الشوكولاتة بالأكوافابا
4 medium cups
120 milliliters (1/2 cup) aquafaba (chickpea water)
100 grams (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
200 grams (7 oz) 60-70% dark chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chunks for topping
1- In a large bowl, add the aquafaba (chickpeas water), granulated sugar, and beat using an electric egg beater for 10 minutes or until the texture becomes fluffy and peaks are firm.
Note: make sure to whip the aquafaba long enough for it to be thick and when you flip the bowl it stays tight.
2- In a medium bowl, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave (or water bath) and mix it with a spoon until smooth and creamy. Set aside and allow it to cool down a little bit.
3- Once the chocolate has cooled down, add it to the aquafaba meringue and fold it with a spatula until well combined.
4- Pour the aquafaba chocolate mousse in 4 glasses and place them into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to set.
5- Top the mousse with dark chocolate chunks and serve it cold.
