ChOcolAte mousse

My answer to my sisters “what can I bring for dessert?”

225g Bournville chocolate, broken into small pieces

  • A knob of butter

  • 1 Tablespoon brandy (optional)

  • 3 Large eggs, separated

  • 150ml Double cream, lightly whipped

Place chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Melt slowly, don’t allow the chocolate to become too hot

  • Stir in the butter, brandy and egg yolks one at a time and mix until combined

  • Set aside to cool slightly

  • Whip the egg whites until just stiff

  • Fold into the chocolate mixture with the whipped cream

  • Spoon into a glass bowl (1-litre capacity) or 6 stemmed glasses or ramekins

  • Transfer to the fridge to set

  • Dust with icing sugar
