Chocolate Mousse Dessert Shooter



CHOCOLATE MOUSSE DESSERT SHOOTER
Applebee's Copycat Recipe

2 tablespoons butter
6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips  (1 cup)
1 tablespoon godiva chocolate liqueur
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 Oreo cookies
1/2 cup fudge sauce
canned whipped cream

Chocolate Mousse: Place the top portion of a double-boiler over hot water, add butter to the bowl, and then set the heat to low. When the butter has melted, add the chocolate chips, reserving 1 tablespoon of the chocolate chips and set aside. Melt chips, add chocolate liqueur and vanilla. Remove bowl from the heat and whisk in egg yolks.

In a separate bowl beat egg whites until they form soft peaks. Stir egg whites into chocolate mixture. In a clean bowl, combine sugar with cream, and then whip cream until stiff. Fold cream into chocolate. Chop remaining 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips into small bits the size of rice. Stir this chocolate into the mousse, then cover and chill the mousse for 3 to 4 hours.

Open the Oreos and scrape out the filling. Put the chocolate wafers into a plastic bag and using a kitchen mallet crush to make crumbs.

To Prepare Dessert: Spoon 2 tablespoons of Oreo cookie crumbs into the bottom of a 6-ounce rocks glass. Spoon 1/3 cup of chilled mousse into the glass, and top it with 2 tablespoons of chocolate fudge topping. Remove lid from fudge topping and warm up the fudge in the jar in your microwave. Top with a rosette of whipped cream on top and sprinkle it with leftover Oreo crumbs.
