I have posted about my love of Chocolate Mousse before and I think my obsession with it is seriously getting out of hand now but I just can’t stop!
Last night we went over to a friend’s house for dinner so I made a bowl of Mousse for dessert. This time I used a block of Whittaker’s Hazelnut Chocolate and OMG it was divine.
Hazelnut Chocolate & Galliano Mousse
- 250g (1 x block) of hazelnut chocolate, broken into small pieces
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 eggs (1 full egg & 1 egg white)
- 3oml shot of Galliano
Put the pieces of chocolate in a bowl and sit bowl over a pan of simmering water until it melts, stirring gently with a spatula every now and then. When it’s melted, stand the bowl on a cold surface to cool down a little.
In another bowl, using an electric handheld whisk, whip the cream, egg, egg white and Galliano together.
You want soft peaks rather than a stiff mixture.
Put a big dollop of cream onto the slightly cooled chocolate and mix, and then gently fold the chocolate mixture into the cream.
Divide mixture between 6 small glasses or empty in to a serving bowl.
Chill in the fridge before serving.
