Chocolate Orange Mousse
- 3 eggs whites (3 oz)
- 3 Tbsp. sugar
- 4 oz 70% dark chocolate
- 3 egg yolks (2 oz)
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- Finely grated zest of ½ orange
- 1 oz Grand Marnier® Cordon Rouge liqueur
- Combine the butter with the melted chocolate. Add the liqueur, orange zest and 2 of the yolks.
Beat the whites using an electric beater and add the sugar when they begin to foam.
When the whites are stiff, add the remaining yolk while continuing to beat. Gently fold the chocolate, yolk, zest, and butter mixture into the whites using a spatula.
Pour the mousse into glasses, decorate with orange zest and keep chilled.
In this reinterpretation of a great classic, the delicate aroma of Grand Marnier® liqueur’s orange essence adds a subtle touch of flavour.
