Sweet Saturday; Chocolate Mousse


This is a recipe Le Marie made for me one Mother’s Day. It only has 147 calories per portion (it serves 6), which is why I asked for it at the time (I was on one of my diets). Be careful of who you serve it to though as it does contain raw eggs.

Ingredients and Method

100g good quality plain or milk chocolate, 300g low fat, ready made custard, 3 large egg whites, 159g fresh raspberries, chocolate drops to decorate.

1. Break the chocolate into pieces and heat in a bowl over a pan of water stirring throughout to make sure it’s completely melted. Allow it to cool, but not set, then stir in the custard into it until smooth.
2. Whisk the egg whites in a bowl until stiff but not dry.
4.Stir a third of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture with a metal spoon then fold in the rest.
5. Divide he mixture between dessert dishes or tea cups, cover with cling film and chill for at least an hour.
6. Once ready to serve remover the cling film and place a few raspberries on the top with some chocolate drops.
