Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries and Cream

Chocolate Mousse 1 - edited 2

This chocolate mousse is rich. So rich, that you need the extra cream to cut through the richness of the chocolate. Berries – or a tart coulis go well and small servings are required. I made this mousse to take to a dinner with friends, served in a pretty crystal bowl.

300ml cream
300g dark chocolate
3 eggs
1/4 cup icing sugar
vanilla/liqueur to flavour (optional)
1 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
Extra whipped cream, for serving
Berries, for serving
Extra cocoa powder, for serving

Melt chocolate and allow to cool.

Whip the cream.

Whip eggs and sugar until pale and doubled in size. Sift the cocoa into the egg mix, then drizzle in the melted chocolate and vanilla or liqueur, if using. Fold in the cream. Spoon into serving dish and refrigerate.

To serve, I topped my mousse with unsweetened whipped cream, fresh strawberries and a dusting of cocoa powder.
