Red Chile-Spiked Chocolate Mousse

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chile_chocolate_mousse.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2010

The idea of chile with chocolate still surprises most people, but the duo pairs beautifully in many chocolate desserts. In this silky, luxurious mousse the chile adds a light but bright accent.

8 servings, about 1/2 cup each | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours 35 minutes (includes chilling time)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Sprinkle gelatin over 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Combine cocoa, granulated sugar, chile powder, espresso powder and salt in a large saucepan. Whisk in egg, then milk. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until steaming and just beginning to thicken, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately whisk in the softened gelatin, chocolate and vanilla. Stir until the chocolate is melted and fully incorporated.
  3. Beat egg whites, brown sugar and cream of tartar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed just until firm peaks form.
  4. Stir one-fourth of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until smooth. Fold in the remaining egg whites until fully incorporated. Spoon the mousse into 8 dessert glasses or cups.
  5. Chill the mousse until set, at least 2 hours. Sprinkle with chile powder, if desired.
