Amazing Galaxy Mousse Cakes

INGREDIENTSFOR THE BROWNIES:

  • 6 oz unsalted butter
  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp instant espresso powder optional
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 oz granulated sugar (3/4 cup)
  • 2.25 oz all-purpose flour (1/2 cup)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

FOR THE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE:

  • 9 oz semi-sweet chocolate chopped (1 ½ cups or can substitute chocolate chips)
  • ¾ cup International Delight Chocolate Caramel Creamer
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 packet unflavored powdered gelatin (1/4 oz)
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 cup heavy cream

FOR THE MIRROR GLAZE:

  • 3 packets unflavored powdered gelatin (3/4 oz)
  • 9 oz water divided use
  • 10 ½ oz granulated sugar (1 ½ cups)
  • 7 oz sweetened condensed milk (1/2 of a standard 14-oz can)
  • 12 oz real white chocolate chopped or white chocolate chips
  • Gel food coloring (I used Americolor Royal Blue Sky Blue Electric Purple Electric Pink Super Black and Bright White)

US CUSTOMARY – METRICINSTRUCTIONSTO MAKE THE BROWNIES:

  1. Line a 9” x 13” baking pan with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine the butter and chopped semi-sweet chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. Melt them together in 30-second increments stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating. Once melted and smooth let it cool to room temperature.
  3. Whisk in the eggs one at a time then whisk in the instant espresso vanilla and granulated sugar. Continue to whisk until the texture smooths and thickens and the batter becomes glossy like pudding. Finally add the flour baking powder and salt and stir in gently with a spatula until no streaks of flour remain.
  4. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Bake the brownies for 15 minutes then remove the pan from the oven and gently rap it on the counter to release any air bubbles. Return it to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes (20 minutes of baking total) or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs attached.
  5. Let the brownies cool completely then use a 2 ¾” circular cutter to cut out 10 brownie circles. If the tops of the brownies are uneven gently press down on them to flatten them out.
  6. Place the brownie circles on a covered baking sheet and freeze them until you’re ready to use them.

TO MAKE THE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE:

  1. Combine the chopped chocolate International Delight creamer and salt in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments whisking every 30 seconds until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Let it cool until it’s slightly warm or room temperature stirring occasionally.
  2. While you wait for the chocolate mixture to cool prepare the gelatin. Whisk together the gelatin and the cold water in a small bowl and set it aside to let the gelatin absorb the water.
  3. Whip the remaining 1 cup heavy cream to firm peaks and set it aside for a moment.
  4. When the chocolate is at room temperature it’s showtime! Microwave the bowl of gelatin for 10-12 seconds until it is melted. Whisk the melted gelatin and chocolate mixture together.
  5. Fold half of the whipped cream into the chocolate and once it’s incorporated gently fold in the remaining whipped cream.
  6. Make sure your silicone molds are clean and dry. Use a large spoon to fill the half-sphere cavities leaving about a half-inch of space at the top. Move the spoon around as you fill them to make sure the mousse is evenly distributed and there are no air pockets that will show up later.
  7. Take a frozen brownie round and press it on top of the mousse pressing firmly so the mousse comes up around the sides of the brownie. Use a spatula to smooth around the edges so they’re perfectly clean.
  8. Place the silicone molds on a baking sheet and freeze for at least 2 hours until VERY firm. (Freezing time may depend on your individual freezer—when in doubt err on the side of more time!)
  9. Once frozen unmold and place each dessert on a small cardboard circle—this will make them easier to transfer later. Keep them in the freezer until you’re ready to glaze them.

TO MAKE THE MIRROR GLAZE:

  1. Whisk together the gelatin and 4 oz (1/2 cup) cold water in a bowl and set it aside to let the gelatin absorb the water.
  2. Combine the remaining 5 oz water sugar and condensed milk in a medium saucepan and place the pan over medium heat. Stir while the sugar dissolves and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  3. Once it is simmering steadily remove it from the heat and add the gelatin (no need to melt the gelatin first—just scrape the big blob out of the bowl!) Whisk the gelatin as the heat from the pan dissolves it and whisk until it is almost entirely incorporated. A few small pieces of gelatin are fine.
  4. Add the white chocolate to the pan and let it sit for a few minutes to soften the chocolate. If you have an immersion blender that is best to use—just stick it right in the pan and blend until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is very smooth. If not you can whisk everything together just try to avoid vigorous whisking that will create a lot of air bubbles.
  5. Divide your glaze into as many bowls as you want. I find it’s easiest to have a few “base colors” that are larger portions and a few “accent colors” that are smaller portions. I made 3 base colors using Americolor Sky Blue Royal Blue and a mix of Royal Blue + a drop of Super Black. I made 3 accent colors using Americolor Electric Purple Electric Pink and Super White. All you need to do is whisk a few drops of food coloring into each bowl of glaze.
  6. Let the bowls set until they cool down to about 95 Fahrenheit (35 C). An instant-read thermometer is the easiest way to check this but if you don’t have one it should feel barely warm on your fingertip and be thick enough to coat it. Stir the bowls occasionally as they cool so they don’t form a skin on top.
  7. Take the mousse cakes from the freezer. Cover a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper for easy clean-up and set small jars or cups on the sheet for the mousse cakes to balance on—try to use ones that are smaller than the base of the cakes so the glaze can drip down cleanly.
  8. In a new bowl pour about 1/3 cup of one of your base colors of glaze then drizzle the top of it with a few other colors—there’s no rhyme or reason here so go crazy! After you’ve added all the colors you want give it a brief stir to swirl everything together but do NOT swirl too much and muddy the colors! Take this bowl of glaze and pour it over one of the cakes swirling it around the top to make sure that all the sides are covered. Let the glaze drip down the cake onto the baking sheet.
  9. If it is dripping quickly and is a very thin layer it’s too warm and needs to cool down a few more degrees. If it is gloopy and clinging to the cake and barely dripping it is too cool. You can warm the bowls of glaze BRIEFLY in the microwave (start with 8-10 seconds each) and stir until they’re fluid again and keep re-warming as necessary while glazing the cakes.
  10. Repeat the swirling and glazing process with the rest of the cakes. It’s fun to give them all different color schemes so they each look unique. If desired finish the cakes with a pinch of edible silver star sprinkles. (Any remaining glaze can be saved and used on a different cake within about a week or so. Make sure it stays covered tightly with plastic wrap so it doesn’t form a skin and dry out.)
  11. Let the cakes sit for about 15 minutes until the glaze is semi-set then transfer them to small plates. Chill for an additional 10-15 minutes until the glaze is full set.
  12. I actually prefer to eat these when they’re closer to room temperature so the brownie layer is softer but that’s not everyone’s preference so do what tastes best to you. Enjoy!
