Cherry Chocolate Mousse

20170910_201129

This is my take on Jamie Olivers 5 Ingredient Recipe on his new Channel 4 TV Show and from his new book. It was really delicious and so easy to make.

 

Makes 6 small pots (or 4 big ones, if you’re like me….lol!)

200g Dark Chocolate

1 jar Black cherries (about 400g) I only used half.

4 eggs

2 tbsp golden cast sugar

200ml double cream

salt

 

  1. First melt chocolate on Induction hob at No. 1 (or in a bowl over water) Keep 1 square of chocolate back for decoration.
  2. Heat up the cherries in syrup gently for about 5-10 minutes              20170910_193858
  3. Divide the whites from the yolks into separate bowls
  4. Mix the egg whites with a pinch of sea salt until stiff peaks             20170910_193850
  5. Mix the cream until slightly thick, then add egg yolks and sugar, mix to combine
  6. Allow the cherries and chocolate to cool before adding
  7. Gently add the chocolate to the cream mixture and fold together             20170910_193843
  8. Then gently fold in the egg whites to the chocolate mixture
  9. Place mousse into a dish, then cherries, then mousse, then cherries……layer up as much as you want.
  10. Grate some chocolate over top to finish……………devour!!!!
