Milk chocolate mousse


-          Milk                                                       ¼ cup

-          Sugar                                                     2 oz.

-          Vanilla bean                                           1

-          Jack Daniel's                                        1 tbs.



In a small sauce pan bring to a boil the sugar with the water.

While the sugar is cooking, in a mixer, using the whisk attachment, whip the yolks.

Once the temperature of the sugar reaches 230 F (using a candy thermometer) and the yolks have developed a fluffy consistency, pour the sugar slowly along the edge of the mixing bowl, as not to cook the yolks too rapidly. Continue mixing for approximately a couple of minutes.

Scrape the vanilla bean into the milk, bring to a boil, add the gelatin, and remove from heat. 

In a large bowl pour the milk over the chocolate. Add egg yolk mixture, Jack Daniel's and combine.  Set aside

Whip the cream & fold into chocolate mix.

Chill the mousse in the fridge to thicken for 4-5 minutes

Line a muffin pan individually with plastic wrap, fill each space half way with the chocolate mousse mix, and set in the middle a tablespoon of the mango jelly. Fill the remaining space with the chocolate mousse. Place a large piece of plastic wrap over the whole muffin pan, set in the freezer over night
