Orange Chocolate Mousse

This orange chocolate mousse is a decadent and easy dessert that's sure to impress. The mousse is light in texture, with rich chocolate flavor and zesty orange notes.

It's a French chocolate mousse, so it's made with raw egg yolks and whisked egg whites. This is vital to bringing light texture.

Melt together butter and semisweet chocolate. Stir until smooth.

Add in egg yolks, mixing in one at a time.

Add in orange zest, orange liqueur (or juice) and a pinch of salt.

Whip egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks form.

Fold this carefully into the chocolate mixture.

Whip cream until medium peaks form, then fold this into the chocolate mixture.

Divide over 4 glasses or cups and refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.

Serve with extra shaved chocolate orange zest.
