Chocolate Mousse Recipes
Chocolate Mousse
  • 100g Dark Chocolate Bar
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 300ml Double Cream
  • 1 large Egg White
  • 2 tbsp Amaretto or any other Liqueur
  • White or Dark Chocolate Shavings (for garnishing) 
  • Using chocolate chippers, chop up the chocolate bar into small pieces. You can use a chef’s knife or even a serrated knife if you do not have a chocolate chipper.
  • In a small saucepan, take half of the quantity of the cream and heat it until it begins to boil.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and toss in the chopped chocolate pieces, stirring continuously until the chocolate completely melts.
  • Take a large bowl of ice-cold water and place a medium sized bowl into it. Pour the molten chocolate into the bowl and add the remaining cream and liqueur to it.
  • Using an electric blender, whisk the mixture until light and frothy. Remove the bowl from the water.
  • In another bowl, take the egg white and beat it with an electric blender until it forms soft peaks. Add sugar to it, adding only one tablespoon at a time and whisk again.
  • Now add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture and blend once again.
  • Pour the mousse in chilled martini glasses and top it with chocolate shavings.
  • Serve chilled.
