Serves 4 to 6
250gm Cocoacraft 52% Dark Chocolate Couverture, chopped into bits
4 tbsp water
5 eggs, yolks separated from whites
1 tbsp rum
Put the Cocoacraft 52% Dark Chocolate Couverture in a saucepan with butter and water. Cook over a very low heat until the mixture becomes a smooth paste. Take the saucepan off the heat and beat in the egg yolks, one at a time using a wooden spoon. Beat the egg whites until you get stiff peaks and then gently fold them into the chocolate mixture. Pour the mousse into a deep bowl or spoon into individual glasses/bowls and leave to chill and set overnight in the fridge. For additional flavour, you can mix in finely chopped roasted almonds or chopped candied orange peel.
