An invitation and a damn good Chocolate Mousse recipe

January 18 2016

Come to South Africa for your next holiday, it’s a magical place that will steal your heart. Visit the Cape Winelands for great food, wine and mountains, KwaZulu-Natal for the amazing beaches and don’t forget to see the wildlife at the national parks. If you are planning a trip here and need some recommendations please drop me an email.

I’m a photographer and graphic designer by day, good food and wine lover by night. I just discovered this recipe online and have made it twice in the space of a week because it was so good…enjoy!

Dark Chocolate Mousse
200 grams Dark Chocolate
6 Fresh Eggs
1 Pinch of salt

Melt chocolate in a double boiler or glass bowl over a
simmering pot of water on the lowest heat, then let cool.
Separate eggs; retain yolks in a medium glass bowl.
Gradually add cooled melted chocolate into the egg yolks, stirring well, the mixture will be very thick at this stage.
Add salt to egg whites and beat until they form stiff peaks.
Using a spatula, gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture in three batches. The mixture will be light and fluffy.
Pour into serving dishes and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
Serve chilled topped with chopped nuts or cocoa nibs for texture.

If you share my passion for baking and food please send me a recipe that you love, I have many more to share from my side in return :-)
