When I say OH MY GOSH this is SO FRIGIN YUMMY I don’t exaggerate. If you love the rich, intense taste of dark chocolate with a slight lemon twang at the end the you really need to give this a try.
This chocolate mousse is the epitome of happiness and everything indulgent. Incredibly light as we lock in the air from the meringue that we whip up first, the powerfully rich from the folded in dark chocolate.
- 3 Egg Whites
- 120G 70% Dark Chocolate
- 1/2 Lemon
- 25G Sugar
1, Start off by whipping your egg whites into a white fluffy peaks, squeeze in some of the 1/2 a lemon’s juice, this will help stabilise the egg white meringue. When peaked, sprinkle in the sugar slowly as you whisk, the eggs will become smoother, whiter and firmer, whisk until the egg whites peak and remain stiff but make sure to stop or you will over-whisk and the air will escape.
2, Place your meringue to one side and melt your dark chocolate in a large bowl over a baine marie, place a pot with hot water over a stove and your bowl over this to melt the chocolate naturally with the heat below.
3, When melted, add in part of the meringue, not all, and mix quickly and vigorously so that the chocolate does not stiffen. Fold in the remaining meringue so as not to lose the air and divide into separate small ramekins. Place in the fridge overnight or for several ours to cool and thicken.
