Method

  1. Place the water in a large heatproof bowl sitting over a saucepan of simmering water.
  2. Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in the bowl to melt slowly.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir to ensure a smooth and glossy mixture.
  4. Allow the chocolate to cool for 2-3 minutes and then stir in the egg yolks.
  5. Place the egg whites in the bowl and use the dual whisk on Auto to whisk until soft peaks form (approximately 30 - 45 seconds). Do not over whisk.
  6. Whisk in the sugar, adding a third at a time. Whisk until the egg white mix looks glossy.
  7. Add the folding tool into the bowl and pour the melted chocolate gently over the egg white mix. Use a low speed (speed 1 – 2) and fold until the chocolate is incorporated (max 60 seconds). DO NOT over mix. Any unprocessed mix should be gently folded in by hand.
  8. Divide the mix between the serving glasses, cover with cling film and allow to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

This mousse recipe uses raw eggs – ensure the eggs are fresh, in date and have been stored in the fridge. Pregnant women or those with weak immunity should not eat raw eggs.
