Few things beat a good, rich chocolate mousse – and this recipe won’t disappoint.
1 Break the chocolate into small chunks and melt with the cream over warm water or in a microwave oven. Do not overheat. Add the rum or coffee.
2 Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form and add the castor sugar, little by little, beating continuously until glossy and stiff peaks form.
3 Fold about 30ml of the chocolate mixture into the egg white mixture, slowly followed by the rest. Spoon into a bowl or individual glasses and cool in the fridge until set. Serve with chocolate curls or decorations and whipped cream.
