Chocolate mousse cups

I love this recipe because it is so refreshing and give you a chocolate fix all at the same time.  It is great for a weeknight dessert, dinner parties or kids party and is so versatile you can tailor it to suit your tastes. 

Chocolate mousse cups

  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 200g milk chocolate (or dark)
  • 4 eggs, separated (at room temperature)
  • 2 Tbspn orange juice
  • extra whipped cream to serve

Step 1
In a large bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form.  Set aside.

Step 2
In a separate bowl, break up chocolate.  Microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring in between until the chocolate has melted.  Do not overheat as the chocolate will burn. 

Step 3
Mix egg yolks & orange juice together & pour into melted chocolate. Whisk until smooth. 

Step 4
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.  Do not over beat.  Set aside. 

Step 5
Gently fold the chocolate mixture into the cream.  Then fold through egg whites.  No not over mix.

Step 6
Spoon mousse into 6 cups & refrigerate until set (approx 8 hrs).  Serve with extra whipped cream.  

Notes: orange juice can be substituted for Bailey's Irish Cream or Kahlua.  You could also try using peppermind chocolate & omit the orange juice.

               Freeze, covered for up to 2 months.  Serve frozen, do not thaw.
