    About this recipe: This is one of the best chocolate mousses I've ever tried. It's so creamy. I personally make the mousse without any alcohol added. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings for an extra special effect.

    Serves: 10 

    • 220g dark chocolate, chopped
    • 7 eggs, separated, egg yolks beaten
    • 30g (1,1/2 tablespoons) caster sugar
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 300ml (1¼ cups) thickened 35% cream
    • 1 tablespoon kirschwasser or cherry liqueur (optional)

    1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler (or in a bowl over a pot of simmering water) until mostly melted. Remove from heat and stir until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
    2. In a separate bowl, whip cream till medium stiff peaks form but do not allow it to become grainy. Set aside.
    3. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites with salt until soft peaks form. Sprinkle in the sugar and continue whipping to medium stiff peaks. Fold in the beaten egg yolks and kirshwasser.
    4. Fold in the melted chocolate until completely incorporated, then fold in whipped cream and blend evenly. Spoon into dessert cups and chill until firm, about 1 hour.
