A super simple desert that any Terry’s Chocolate Orange fan will love!
I love Terry’s Chocolate Orange and everyone knows this so I tend to get quite a few for Christmas! Whilst having a little clear out of the cupboards I came across a dark Chocolate Orange and decided to not simply devour it in one sitting (as per usually!) but turn it into a light and fluffy chocolate mousse. It was extremely easy to make and really delicious!
Ingredients (makes enough for 8 espresso sized cups)
- 1 Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange (175g)
- 50g unsalted butter, cubed
- 4 large free range eggs, separated into yolks and whites
- 2 dessert spoons of caster sugar
Break the chocolate orange up into segments and place in a heatproof bowl or Pyrex jug.
In a saucepan, bring some water to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Hold the bowl of chocolate just over the simmering water and stir the chocolate once it has started to melt. Once melted add the cubes of butter and when all has melted and blended move the mixture away from the pan of water and set aside to cool for a few minutes.
While it’s cooling, mix the separated egg yolks with the caster sugar. And then add the yolks to the chocolate and butter. Don’t add them if the mixture is too hot as you don’t want scrambled egg in your chocolate mousse!
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are thick and when you remove the whisk from the mixture it shouldn’t drip.
Fold the the whisked egg whites into the chocolate mixture and stir until all is mixed together.
Spoon or pour your mixture into small bowls, glasses or espresso cups.
Place the individual mousses in the fridge to set. Allow at least 3 hours for the mousse to set properly.
