Ingredients

  • For the mousse:
  • 2 eggs
  • 110 g good quality dark chocolate (or half dark and milk chocolate)
  • Recipe easily doubles up: 1 egg and 50 g chocolate per person/serving
  • Optional topping:
  • Whipped cream and chopped walnuts/pecans

Method

    1. Separate the eggs carefully and whisk the yolks gently until just turning light
    2. Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks using a food processor, electric hand whisk, or by hand (this will take longer). Make sure no trace of grease or yolk is in with the whites.
    3. Melt the chocolate until smooth gently in a bowl suspended in a saucepan half-filled with water. Constantly stir with a dessert spoon to ensure the chocolate does not burn.
    4. Take off the heat and add the egg yolks to the chocolate - this will cook the eggs slightly. Leave to cool for 15 minutes
    5. Fold in the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until fully mixed then split mixture between ramekins or wine glasses. Cover with foil or cling film and chill for 2 hours. Add topping if desired.
