What Is the Difference Between Chocolate Mousse And Chocolate Pudding?
Chocolate Mousse vs. Chocolate Pudding
Pudding gets its thick consistency from cooking (which activates the cornstarch), whereas mousse does not require cooking. The texture of these two creamy desserts differs due to the different methods of thickening used. Pudding is more dense and semisolid, whereas mousse is lighter and airier.
How to Thicken the Mousse?
Try combining a small amount of cornstarch with some water and gradually adding it to the mousse to see how it thickens the texture. Alternatively, in a separate bowl, whisk some egg yolks over low heat until they increase in volume, then slowly fold them into the mousse mixture.
How to Make Chocolate Mousse Without Electronic Whisk?
If you don’t have an electronic whisk, simply combine the chocolate mousse ingredients and set aside to set. There is no need to melt the chocolate using the blender method – simply blend for several minutes until the chocolate is completely melted, then pour and chill.
Can I Use A Different Type of Bean?
Yes! Other types of beans will work as well. However, if you use lighter beans, the chocolate mousse may not be as dark.
Can I Store This Chocolate Bean Mousse in The Freezer?
Yes! It can be frozen in one large portion or divided into smaller containers and can be served in a variety of ways. Personally, I like to top mine with brightly colored fruit, such as raspberries, and sprinkle with broken nuts for crunch.
