Hazelnut chocolate mousse

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Whole hazelnuts; roasted, then
Finely chopped
7 ounces Bittersweet chocolate
3 tablespoons Water
1 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla
8 ounces Cream cheese; softened
⅓ cup Hazelnut liqueur or extract
1 teaspoon Heavy whipping cream
¼ cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Roast whole hazelnuts in the oven to bring out the flavor. Remove the skins and chop. Set aside. Melt chocolate in microwave or over double boiler.

Make a simple syrup by stirring together 3 tablespoons water, 1 cup sugar, and 2 teaspoons vanilla in a heavy saucepan. Add to chocolate and bring just to a boil over low heat. Remove saucepan from heat and fold in 8 ounces cream cheese, ⅓ cup hazelnut liqueur or extract, and 1 cup hazelnuts. Set aside to cool. Whip 1 pint heavy whipping cream, ¼ cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until stiff. Fold the cooled chocolate mixture and all but a few tablespoons of the whipped cream mixture gently together, being careful not to over-mix. Pour into individual serving cups.

Garnish with remaining whipped cream and coarsely chopped hazelnuts.
