Chocolate mousse

Number of servings: 6


Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs (4 whites, 3 yolks)
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) sugar
  • 200 g (7 oz) dark chocolate made from 70% cocoa
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) unsalted butter
  • 80 ml (⅓ cup) iögo Greko Plain

Preparation

Separate the egg whites from the yolks (keep 3 yolks). In a bowl, use a mixer to beat the egg whites until it holds soft peaks, and gradually add the sugar until firm. Set aside. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave; once softened, add the butter and then fold in the 3 yolks. Add the yogurt and mix until
homogenous. Let stand to cool off. Do not overwhip or the mousse may
be grainy. Gradually fold the meringue into the chocolate preparation, delicately
aerating the mixture with a spatula. Once homogeneous, pour the mousse into individual cups and chill until ready to serve.

candied orange peels. In the latter
case, for added flavour and aroma,
you can also add 15 ml (1 tbsp)
of Cointreau or any other orange
liqueur.
