200 g of 70% chocolate (or as close to 70% as possible)
165 g brewed earl gray tea or coffee (decaf is fine)
1 Tbsp grand marnier (or more tea or coffee)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract4 egg yolks from large eggs
Unfortunately, this mousse does require some expensive toys. Here is what I use:
- iSi Siphon -- mine works on hot and cold preparations, but there is a cheaper one that only does cold preparations.
- Siphon tips -- my siphon came with tips (I've had it for a few years), but it looks like now you buy them separately.
