Recipe (for 4-6 people)
200 g dark chocolate (baking chocolate)
40 g butter
2-3 eggyolks (1)
5-6 eggwhites (2)
40 g sugar
a few drops of lemon juice (3)
Melt the chocolate and butter together in a bain-marie. Add the eggyolks to the chocolate and mix to have a shiny uniform mix. In a bowl, beat up the eggwhites and towards the end add the sugar and lemon while beating. Gently incorporate the eggwhites with a spatula to the chocolate bit by bit until obtaining an airy mix. Pour the mousse in small cups or glasses and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Serve and decorate with thin biscuits or berries, as you prefer.
- if you have big eggs use 2 yolks and 5 whites, else use 3 yolks and 6 whites of smaller eggs
- the more eggwhites you add, the more airy your mousse becomes (i.e. better)
- the lemon juice helps get rid of the eggy taste
