Dark Chocolate Mousse

What's this? A indulgent, dark chocolate mousse that isn't packed full of sugar? A mousse that only has two ingredients? Could you nearly say it's good for you? Well that's the line I'm going with! Because there's certainly nothing wrong with a dark piece of chocolate and an egg. And what's even better is - you can make this yummy dessert in super quick time. This is nearly health food!

To make this mousse, get a good quality 100g bar of 70% chocolate. My favourite at the moment is Asda's Extra Special Organic Dominican Republic Dark Chocolate. And at only £1.29, I think it's a great bargain.

This mousse is super yummy and indulgent, but it is so rich - you really won't need a lot. You could add a shot of espresso for a coffee hit, or some orange zest for a zingy vibe. Serve on it's own or with whipped cream or creme fraiche. Enjoy!

100g 70% cocoa solids chocolate
4 medium eggs, separated

Smash your bar of chocolate into pieces and melt in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Leave to cool slightly. Now separate your eggs. Whisk the egg whites until stiff. When the chocolate has cooled slightly, add the egg yolks and any flavouring you want to put in. Fold in the egg white being careful not to knock any air out. Spoon into small bowls or ramekins and refrigerate for at least four hours.
