Peppermint Mousse, anyone?
You need more Christmas too.
The peppermint mousse is really easy, I SWEAR.
This is one of those recipes I stumbled across, and thought, “Holy cow this is easy!“.
I also thought, “I can’t believe I have all this stuff in the house.”
Which was sort of a funny thought, since there are really only 4 ingredients.
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons sugar
2 egg whites
Flavoring: PEPPERMINT extract
Add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the heavy cream.
Add peppermint extract.
Whip until fluffy with stiff peaks.
Realize you have no eggs in the house. Go out to the coop and search for late-afternoon eggs.
Find two banty eggs waaaaaay back where it is hard to get them.
Curse the heavens.
Come inside and see the whipped cream is ready.
Set whipped cream in fridge to chill.
Decide to use super-pointy fart egg as well. It probably is yolk-less anyway.
Crack fart egg. See that it is indeed yolk-less. Contemplate breeding chickens that lay yolkless eggs for marketing to bakers. Realize cloning is still too expensive, and hatching yolkless eggs is a fruitless activity.
Come back to reality.
Turn on Christmas music.
Whip egg whites and tablespoon of sugar until stiff peaks form.
Fold egg whites into whipped cream.
Top with chocolate shavings, crushed peppermint sticks, or Christmas cheer.

This looks yummy, How many does it make?
I think one of the best things about some of the Holiday recipes is the beauty of them.

P.S. This is the very first I have ever heard of an egg with no yolk! Didn’t know such things happen. Good timing for yours.

This recipe looks great and had me laughing! But…I have never heard of a fart egg? Is that a scientific latin name? LOL!!!

Larissa, don’t scold the chics to badly…at least they gave you what you needed to do the recipe. That was a blessing, even if you did have to use the FART. The Mousse looks scrumptious

LOL what a great blog and recipe Larissa! Thanks! And a yolk-less egg? Does that really happen???? What a boon for the cholesterol-challenged among us!

Yeah, yolk-less eggs are fairly common, especially in new layers. Just like when you were a teenager, the girls occasionally have a bad day and produce a mis-fire. On the other hand, they are just as likely to lay double and triple yolkers, which would probably not help your cholesterol at all 😉
