Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Orange Scented Chocolate Mousse

Another Passover favorite, this is a rich decadent mousse full of wonderful chocolate orange flavor. We usually serve this mousse plain, but it is excellent with non-dairy pareve whipped topping. For those not keeping kosher, it is also great with very lightly sweetened whipped cream or crème anglais.

1/2 pound high quality semi-sweet chocolate
6 tablespoons water
Pinch salt
5 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon pure orange extract
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
chocolate curls (optional)
orange rind twists (optional)

Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in the top of a double boiler or microwave proof bowl with the water and salt. Heat until the chocolate is melted in the double boiler or microwave. Let cool for 2 minutes. Rapidly beat the egg yolks into the chocolate mixture one at a time. Beat in the extract, zest, and liqueur. In a clean bowl with clean beaters whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently but thoroughly fold in the chocolate mixture. Pour into a large serving dish or individual bowls or glasses. Refrigerate overnight. Garnish with the chocolate curls and orange rind twists before serving.

Makes 8 servings.
