What is the most tasty companion of orange in a desert? Dark chocolate! You are absolutely right! Let’s try it!
- 130g of dark chocolate
- 1 orange
- 3 eggs
- Whipped cream
Break chocolate into pieces. Squeeze juice out of half of the orange. Melt chocolate in the juice in water bath. In the meantime separate egg whites and yolks. Whip the egg whites to get stiff foam. If the chocolate became liquid cool it down a little. Add yolks, one at a time and mix until the mixture is uniform after every yolk. Now you need to be very soft – add the egg whites – one spoonful at the time and softly combine with chocolate. Continue until egg whites and chocolate is combined. Put the mousse to the glasses and place in a fridge. The mousse should cool down for at least 5 hours. Peel the second half of orange and cut into nice pieces. Decorate with whipped cream and pieces of orange before serving. Bon appetite!
