Ingredients

  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate- broken in to pieces
  • 1 oz dark chocolate - broken into pieces
  • 2 tbsp organic or raw butter- broken into pieces*- for a lighter mousse replace with 2 tbsp water
  • 6 eggs at room temperature- separated
  • optional: splash of Grand Marnier

Instructions

  • Place chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter or water into the top bowl of a double boiler and melt slowly, stirring regurlarly.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks until well blended. Gently mix in to cooled chocolate, in a steady stream while stirring constantly, until a a thick cream is formed.
  • If you are adding Grand Marnier or another liqueur of your choice, add about a spoonful to the chocolate cream and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl whip egg whites until firm. For the best results, whip the egg whites by hand in a cool bowl. This is the most important part to the success of your mousse and will ensure a nice, firm but airy mousse.
  • Gently fold chocolate cream into egg whites until fully mixed. Do not over mix.
  • Chill for about an hour before serving.
  • Serve with fresh fruit, or candied orange rind.
  • Go ahead and indulge!
