Chocolate mousse is always a winner but this dark chocolate mouse recipe takes everything to a whole new level, absolutely delicious!

Ingredients:

300g dark chocolate, roughly chopped (60% Cocao)
3 eggs
1/4 cup caster sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
300ml thickened cream

Method:

1. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Stir until melted. Remove bowl from heat and set aside to cool slightly.

2. Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes, or until mixture is pale, thick and has doubled in volume. Fold in cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until well combined.

3. In a separate bowl, whip the cream. Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, trying to keep the mixture as light as possible.

4. Spoon into 6 serving glasses and chill in fridge for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving, then top with grated chocolate to serve, you may also add ice cream on the side!
