What is it? Mickey Mousse Dome

Why you want it? Chocolate Overload in the shape of Mickey Mouse!

Where can you get it? Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort


2 cups chilled heavy cream
4 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package of gelatin, bloomed
7 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped

Garnish: Two Chocolate Coins and Oreo Cookies

Special equipment: an instant-read thermometer

Method of Preparation
Heat 3/4 cup cream in a 1-quart heavy saucepan until hot. Whisk> together yolks, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a metal bowl until combined well, then add hot cream and gelatin in a slow stream, whisking until combined. Transfer mixture to saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, until it registers 160°F on thermometer. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and stir in vanilla.

Melt chocolate in a double boiler or a metal bowl set over a pan of
simmering water (or in a glass bowl in a microwave at 50 percent power
3 to 5 minutes), stirring frequently. Whisk custard into chocolate until smooth, then cool.

Beat remaining 1 1/4 cups cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until it just holds stiff peaks. Whisk one fourth of cream into chocolate custard to lighten, then fold in remaining cream gently but thoroughly.

Spoon mousse into small cups and let set then at the Oreo cookie.
Once completely set demold and add the two chocolate coins to the top.
