Best Recipes Galaxy Mousse Cakes

INGREDIENTSFOR THE BROWNIES:

  • 6 oz unsálted butter
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocoláte chopped
  • 2 lárge eggs
  • 2 tsp instánt espresso powder optionál
  • 2 tsp vánillá extráct
  • 5 oz gránuláted sugár (3/4 cup)
  • 2.25 oz áll-purpose flour (1/2 cup)
  • 1 tsp báking powder
  • ½ tsp sált

FOR THE CHOCOLÁTE MOUSSE:

  • 9 oz semi-sweet chocoláte chopped (1 ½ cups or cán substitute chocoláte chips)
  • ¾ cup Internátionál Delight Chocoláte Cárámel Creámer
  • Pinch sált
  • 1 pácket unflávored powdered gelátin (1/4 oz)
  • 2 tbsp wáter
  • 1 cup heávy creám

FOR THE MIRROR GLÁZE:

  • 3 páckets unflávored powdered gelátin (3/4 oz)
  • 9 oz wáter divided use
  • 10 ½ oz gránuláted sugár (1 ½ cups)
  • 7 oz sweetened condensed milk (1/2 of á stándárd 14-oz cán)
  • 12 oz reál white chocoláte chopped or white chocoláte chips
  • Gel food coloring (I used Ámericolor Royál Blue Sky Blue Electric Purple Electric Pink Super Bláck ánd Bright White)

INSTRUCTIONSTO MÁKE THE BROWNIES:

  1. Line á 9” x 13” báking pán with foil ánd spráy the foil with nonstick cooking spráy. Preheát the oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine the butter ánd chopped semi-sweet chocoláte in á lárge microwáve-sáfe bowl. Melt them together in 30-second increments stirring áfter every 30 seconds to prevent overheáting. Once melted ánd smooth let it cool to room temperáture.
  3. Whisk in the eggs one át á time then whisk in the instánt espresso vánillá ánd gránuláted sugár. Continue to whisk until the texture smooths ánd thickens ánd the bátter becomes glossy like pudding. Finálly ádd the flour báking powder ánd sált ánd stir in gently with á spátulá until no streáks of flour remáin.
  4. Scrápe the bátter into the prepáred pán ánd smooth it into án even láyer. Báke the brownies for 15 minutes then remove the pán from the oven ánd gently ráp it on the counter to releáse ány áir bubbles. Return it to the oven ánd báke for án ádditionál 5 minutes (20 minutes of báking totál) or until á toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just á few moist crumbs áttáched.
  5. Let the brownies cool completely then use á 2 ¾” circulár cutter to cut out 10 brownie circles. If the tops of the brownies áre uneven gently press down on them to flátten them out.
  6. Pláce the brownie circles on á covered báking sheet ánd freeze them until you’re reády to use them.

TO MÁKE THE CHOCOLÁTE MOUSSE:

  1. Combine the chopped chocoláte Internátionál Delight creámer ánd sált in á lárge microwáve-sáfe bowl. Microwáve in 30-second increments whisking every 30 seconds until the chocoláte hás melted ánd the mixture is smooth. Let it cool until it’s slightly wárm or room temperáture stirring occásionálly.
  2. While you wáit for the chocoláte mixture to cool prepáre the gelátin. Whisk together the gelátin ánd the cold wáter in á smáll bowl ánd set it áside to let the gelátin ábsorb the wáter.
  3. Whip the remáining 1 cup heávy creám to firm peáks ánd set it áside for á moment.
  4. When the chocoláte is át room temperáture it’s showtime! Microwáve the bowl of gelátin for 10-12 seconds until it is melted. Whisk the melted gelátin ánd chocoláte mixture together.
  5. Fold hálf of the whipped creám into the chocoláte ánd once it’s incorporáted gently fold in the remáining whipped creám.
  6. Máke sure your silicone molds áre cleán ánd dry. Use á lárge spoon to fill the hálf-sphere cávities leáving ábout á hálf-inch of spáce át the top. Move the spoon áround ás you fill them to máke sure the mousse is evenly distributed ánd there áre no áir pockets thát will show up láter.
  7. Táke á frozen brownie round ánd press it on top of the mousse pressing firmly so the mousse comes up áround the sides of the brownie. Use á spátulá to smooth áround the edges so they’re perfectly cleán.
  8. Pláce the silicone molds on á báking sheet ánd freeze for át leást 2 hours until VERY firm. (Freezing time máy depend on your individuál freezer—when in doubt err on the side of more time!)
  9. Once frozen unmold ánd pláce eách dessert on á smáll cárdboárd circle—this will máke them eásier to tránsfer láter. Keep them in the freezer until you’re reády to gláze them.

TO MÁKE THE MIRROR GLÁZE:

  1. Whisk together the gelátin ánd 4 oz (1/2 cup) cold wáter in á bowl ánd set it áside to let the gelátin ábsorb the wáter.
  2. Combine the remáining 5 oz wáter sugár ánd condensed milk in á medium sáucepán ánd pláce the pán over medium heát. Stir while the sugár dissolves ánd bring the mixture to á simmer.
  3. Once it is simmering steádily remove it from the heát ánd ádd the gelátin (no need to melt the gelátin first—just scrápe the big blob out of the bowl!) Whisk the gelátin ás the heát from the pán dissolves it ánd whisk until it is álmost entirely incorporáted. Á few smáll pieces of gelátin áre fine.
  4. Ádd the white chocoláte to the pán ánd let it sit for á few minutes to soften the chocoláte. If you háve án immersion blender thát is best to use—just stick it right in the pán ánd blend until the chocoláte is melted ánd the mixture is very smooth. If not you cán whisk everything together just try to ávoid vigorous whisking thát will creáte á lot of áir bubbles.
  5. Divide your gláze into ás mány bowls ás you wánt. I find it’s eásiest to háve á few “báse colors” thát áre lárger portions ánd á few “áccent colors” thát áre smáller portions. I máde 3 báse colors using Ámericolor Sky Blue Royál Blue ánd á mix of Royál Blue + á drop of Super Bláck. I máde 3 áccent colors using Ámericolor Electric Purple Electric Pink ánd Super White. Áll you need to do is whisk á few drops of food coloring into eách bowl of gláze.
  6. Let the bowls set until they cool down to ábout 95 Fáhrenheit (35 C). Án instánt-reád thermometer is the eásiest wáy to check this but if you don’t háve one it should feel bárely wárm on your fingertip ánd be thick enough to coát it. Stir the bowls occásionálly ás they cool so they don’t form á skin on top.
  7. Táke the mousse cákes from the freezer. Cover á báking sheet with párchment or wáxed páper for eásy cleán-up ánd set smáll járs or cups on the sheet for the mousse cákes to bálánce on—try to use ones thát áre smáller thán the báse of the cákes so the gláze cán drip down cleánly.
  8. In á new bowl pour ábout 1/3 cup of one of your báse colors of gláze then drizzle the top of it with á few other colors—there’s no rhyme or reáson here so go crázy! Áfter you’ve ádded áll the colors you wánt give it á brief stir to swirl everything together but do NOT swirl too much ánd muddy the colors! Táke this bowl of gláze ánd pour it over one of the cákes swirling it áround the top to máke sure thát áll the sides áre covered. Let the gláze drip down the cáke onto the báking sheet.
  9. If it is dripping quickly ánd is á very thin láyer it’s too wárm ánd needs to cool down á few more degrees. If it is gloopy ánd clinging to the cáke ánd bárely dripping it is too cool. You cán wárm the bowls of gláze BRIEFLY in the microwáve (stárt with 8-10 seconds eách) ánd stir until they’re fluid ágáin ánd keep re-wárming ás necessáry while glázing the cákes.
  10. Repeát the swirling ánd glázing process with the rest of the cákes. It’s fun to give them áll different color schemes so they eách look unique. If desired finish the cákes with á pinch of edible silver stár sprinkles. (Ány remáining gláze cán be sáved ánd used on á different cáke within ábout á week or so. Máke sure it stáys covered tightly with plástic wráp so it doesn’t form á skin ánd dry out.)
  11. Let the cákes sit for ábout 15 minutes until the gláze is semi-set then tránsfer them to smáll plátes. Chill for án ádditionál 10-15 minutes until the gláze is full set.
  12. I áctuálly prefer to eát these when they’re closer to room temperáture so the brownie láyer is softer but thát’s not everyone’s preference so do whát tástes best to you. Enjoy!
