Posted in Desserts with tags , , , on April 14, 2008 by brazilnut2008
  • 3 Eggs
  • Half a can of Nestle Table Cream (find at publix)
  • 1 Can of Condensed Milk
  • 300grams of milk chocolate half bitter
  • 2 Soup spoons of sugar

Beat the whites and set them aside.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (meaning place chocolate in a pan that will fit into another pan that already has hot water in it, that way you will get inderect heat coming and melting your chocolate). Set it aside.

Beat the yoke with sugar until they all turn white. Add the condensed milk and the table cream and beat a little more.

Carefully mix the melted chocolate and then add the white you had set aside.

Place in fridge for at least 3 hours before serving.

You will then have your Chocolate Mouse Supreme. Enjoy.
