Do you have a favourite chocolate? One of our family favs is the Toblerone! It is milk chocolate with small pieces of nougat through it with a slight nutty taste. Perfect for eating, cooking and well, eating! I’ve also used this recipe with plain chocolate and it is lovely, so grab your favourite chocolate and give this a go!
500 g toblerone chocolate, broken into bits
5 eggs separated
1 ¼ cups thickened cream
Chop up the chocolate and put it in a microwave safe dish, then microwave in 40 second spirts until melted. Leave to cool. Separate the eggs into different dishes. Beat the egg whites with an electric whisk until soft peaks form. Stir egg yolks into the chocolate, don’t worry if it appears strange, you will sort it! Beat the cream in a different bowl until soft peaks form and then fold into the chocolate and yolk mixture, folding until combined. Add the egg whites and fold them in with as few folds as you can. Spoon the mix into dishes/cups/serving glasses whatever you prefer and leave in the fridge for at least 5 hours or overnight. I used plastic cups as this was for a child’s birthday party, and just before serving I added a sprig of mint to the top as it looked like a plant growing (it was a garden birthday theme)! Enjoy this beautiful mousse! You will make it again! I promise!
