Chocolate mousse with orange liqueur

Sarah Bowman
  • Serving size: Serves 8
  • Cooking time: More than 2 hours

Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl or the top of a double boiler and warm gently over boiling water (ensuring base of bowl does not touch the water), until glossy and just melted. Remove from heat and stir in the butter. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites, adding the sugar slowly while beating, until soft peaks form.

Mix the eggs and Grand Marnier into the cooled chocolate.

Mix a small amount of egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture until well combined, then fold in remaining egg white followed by whipped cream.

Spoon into individual glasses or a serving bowl and chill for 3 hours or overnight. Serve with Cinnamon Oranges
