Mousses for patisserie and desserts:

Callebaut presents a new range of ready-to-use Dark, Milk and White Chocolate Mousses! Rich in Callebaut chocolate, their taste and texture are beyond any comparison: true and authentic, just like home made desserts! And imagine the gain of time they can offer you! Wouldn't it be perfect?

* Patisserie usually calls for a (chocolate) mousse with a prominent taste and a smooth, firm texture. The taste of even the thinnest layer of mousse must come through perfectly among the other components of a pastry. The best results are achieved with a cold-whipped pâte à bombe as the foundation (boil sugar syrup, pour over egg-yolks and beat cold to a white foam). You may then adjust the flavour with a selected chocolate, and finish with semi-whipped cream.

* For desserts on the other hand, an airy mousse based on egg white and beaten whipping cream is the usual option. These mousses are easier to handle (for example when forming 'scoops') and provide a light conclusion to a menu of several courses.

* Mousses based on white chocolate merit a special note: adding a little cream, work the white chocolate up into a ganache. Only then should you mix with the pâte à bombe (or beaten egg-white) and whipped cream. This method produces a mousse with a smooth homogenous texture that stiffens easily.
