How to make... Chocolate mousse


Ingredients (serves 12): 
  • 250 grams (8.82 oz) chocolate 
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 litre (33.81 fl oz) cream
  • crushed almonds 
Method
1 Melt the chocolate at a low temperature
2 & 3 Add the egg yolks (the whites go into a separate bowl) and keep stirring 
4 Beat the egg whites until stiff
5 Mix the chocolate with the egg whites, then leave for 30 minutes
6 Meanwhile beat the cream until stiff
7 Add the cream to the chocolate-egg mix

I recommend that you keep the mousse refrigerated for a couple of hours to let it settle.


Add the mousse to small cups and add the crushed almonds on top before serving.
