I know that we are still celebrating Costa Rica Independence month, but I can't hold the temptation to begin planning the dishes and desserts for the spookiest party of the year.

So, if you are also thinking about what you are going to fix for the Halloween party, I have a so yummy chocolate dessert recipe super easy to make. Kids will love it!

So, let's go to the kitchen !

Spooky Chocolate Mousse

Ingredients for 3 servings are:

∑ 2 eggs.

Spray extra creamy dairy whipped (very cold).

∑ 15 grams pastry confectioners sugar.

∑150 grams dark chocolate.

∑ 8 Oreo cookies.

A pinch of salt.

First, divide the whites from the yolks and reserve the yolks.

In a bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Add a pinch of salt and beat again.

A tip. When beaten, egg whites increase as much as 6 to 8 times in volume. The bowl should be large enough to hold the expanding whites, but not so large that the whites are spread too thin. Reserve the
fluffy whites.

Second, in a large bowl add one cup of the cream and sugar. Mix gently. 

Another tip. For optimum volume and smoothest texture, sugar should be added gradually. Put the mixture in a pastry bag and store it in the fridge.

Third, in a pot, add one cup of cream and chocolate and heat it over low heat. You can do this in the microwave, but be sure to heat slowly so the chocolate doesn't burn. Then, add the yolks. Mix well while you are heating the mixture for two more minutes.

Then, in a large container, add the chocolate mixture and the fluffy whites. Mix very slowly, you must make circular movements with the spoon so the mixture will not lose air. In this way, you will have managed to make the chocolate mousse. Add the chocolate mousse into a pastry bag and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

step, open the cookies and with a spoon remove the white cream. Reserve the white cream. Then, smash the cookies (I put them in a bag and hit them with a rolling pin).

Use the white cream of the cookie and cut out six small circles. These are the whites of our little monster eyes.

In a saucepan, melt one ounce of chocolate. Use a small spoon and place a drop of the chocolate in the center of the white circles of cookie cream. Those are the eyes to decorate the three glasses.

Place each little eye on the edges of the glass pressing gently.

To finish the dessert. Add into each glass a layer of smashed cookies. Then, with the pastry bag add a layer of chocolate mousse. Then, add a layer of smashed cookies. Then, another layer of mousse.

At the top add some whipped cream, and at the very top add some garnished chocolate. Grate a bar of chocolate on the medium round holes of a box grater to create small curls.  Remember to keep them in the fridge before serving.

There you go! Our little chocolate creatures are ready to party!!
