Recipe: Chocolate Mousse

Found in: Secondary

You may know someone who is craving chocolate continually? This may be the post-winter delight you your friend is looking for.

INGREDIENTS

-300g good-quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
-3 eggs, at room temperature
-1/4 cup (55g) Caster Sugar
-1 tablespoon good-quality cocoa powder, sifted
-300ml thickened cream, plus extra whipped cream to serve
-Grated chocolate, to serve

METHOD

Step 1
Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (don't let the bowl touch the water). Stir until melted. Remove bowl from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
Step 2
Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric beaters for 5 minutes, or until mixture is pale, thick and doubled in volume. Fold in cocoa powder and cooled chocolate until combined.
Step 3
In a separate bowl, whip cream until thickened (be careful not to over-beat). Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, trying to keep the mixture as light as possible. Spoon into 6 serving glasses and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving, then top with extra whipped cream and grated chocolate to serve.
