Consuming chocolate is one of my favourite weaknesses… I have it anytime of the day because it always makes me feel better. I have been having lots of chocolate based treats for the past month. My aunt showed me a local shop where she buys lots of cocoa powder & cooking chocolate at a very good price and who doesn’t want a good deal? Among the many things I’ve made is this Dark chocolate mousse which was to die for! I’d make it and have it everyday if I could.
You’ll love it if you try it; the recipe is really simple. You’ll need:-
300g good quality cocoa powder
100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1/4 cup caster sugar
300ml thickened cream
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 place aside.
Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes or until the mixture is pale, thick and doubled in volume. Add the thickened cream and mix well. Fold in cooled chocolate and the cocoa powder until combined.
Spoon it into tiny sauce bowls or glasses.
Garnish with fruit, whip cream or grated chocolate.
