Death by chocolate mousse

This mousse is really rich and chocolatey, but still light – perfection! You can also dress this mousse up a bit by adding some orange zest and juice or perhaps some Baileys – the possibilities are endless!

What you’ll need: 
Serves 4

  • 200g good quality dark chocolate
  • 4 egg whites
  • 300ml double cream

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a saucepan of previously boiled simmering water.
  2. Semi-whip the cream and whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  3. Stir in the whipped cream to the melted chocolate that should by now be off the heat.
  4. Next, add the egg whites to the mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Place the mixture into individual ramekins/dessert glasses and put into the fridge to set for an hour or more.
