To accompany the first of our Star Wars rewatches, I made a dark chocolate mousse. As rich as Queen Amidala’s wardrobe and as dark as Senator Palpatine’s heart, this mousse kept us happy through the podrace and droid battles.
- 7 oz dark chocolate
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons dark rum
- 3 eggs
Melt the chocolate, butter, and rum together in a double boiler over barely simmering water
Separate the eggs
Remove the melted chocolate from the heat and whisk in the egg yolks
Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks
Whisk the egg whites into the chocolate mixture
Spoon into dishes and chill for an hour

Geeks eat, too! Second Breakfast is an occasional feature in which we talk about food with geeky connections and maybe make some of our own. Yum!
