  • 1 1/2 ounces almond paste
  • 1/4 cup almond-based liqueur
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups heavy cream, whipped
  • Mint leaves, fresh
  • Chocolate shaved


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the almond-based liqueur, egg yolks, sugar, and almond paste. By hand, mix together until well blended. Set the bowl aside.
  2. In a double boiler over medium heat, mix together the half-and-half and chopped chocolate.
  3. When the chocolate is just melted, sift in the cocoa powder and mix. Bring the mixture a simmer by increasing the heat.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix a little bit of the egg mixture and the chocolate mixture together. Continue until both mixtures are completely mixed together.
  5. Pour the mixture back into the double boiler and cook for 3-5 minutes. Do not let the mixture boil. The mixture will be creamy.
  6. Remove the top of the double boiler and place it in an ice bath. Stir until the mixture is completely cool.
  7. In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream.
  8. Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture carefully.
  9. Fill champagne glasses with the mouse.
  10. Place glasses in the fridge to firm.
  11. In a small bowl, whip some additional whipped cream.
  12. Top glasses with whipped cream, mint leaves, and shaved chocolate.

    1. The older cookbooks have been released numerous times with different book titles. Sometimes there is minor changes in them. I’m going to look to see if I A. Just didn’t type the instructions, and B. if it wasn’t there, see if I can find another source for it. If those don’t work I’ll just take the recipe down.

    2. So the original recipe doesn’t have the step listed. I’m going to take this down until I find out the step. Thanks again for letting me know. 🙂
