The Thermomix makes melting the chocolate very easy, but also whipping the cream and whisking the eggs - both things I think are essential to get right to create a beautifully airy and light mousse.
Ingredients – sugar – thickened cream – dark chocolate – butter – eggs – Cointreau or Grand Marnier optional
This takes around 1 minute 30 seconds to become light and fluffy and then you whisk in the sugar for a further minute. It will be almost like a meringue mixture.
Finally, fold in the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Do this carefully to maintain the light and airy texture.
Chill it in the fridge for at least 2 hours, then top with whipped cream and grated chocolate to serve.
