It's worth a shot...
Does anyone have a recipe for chocolate mousse that ran in the New York Times probably in the late 1970s or early '80s?
I recall that it involved melting chocolate, adding egg yolks and possibly some amaretto, and something about whipping egg whites and folding them in either before or after whipped cream? I remember having to help my mom separate the eggs and lots of hand mixer use. All in all, it had several steps it it, but was rather easy and very good.
This recipe did NOT involve a blender or gelatin as many I am finding do.
