Powdered Egg Whites in Chocolate Mousse Question

jeanmarieok | Mar 31, 2010 08:35 AM

I am making a substantial amount of chocolate mousse for a baby shower. The recipe I usually use, which I have successfully quadrupled, uses raw egg whites. The lovely pregnant mama to be cannot have raw eggs. Can I substitute powdered egg whites? I've never used them before. Or does someone have a recipe that is delicious that doesn't use eggs at all? (BTW - the egg yolks are mixed with the simmering cream first, then the chocolate is stirred in - do you suppose I need to worry about the egg yolks, too?)
