Easy Chocolate Orange Mousse


Easy Chocolate Orange Mousse

I'm usually not one to blow my own trumpet, but I have to say these chocolate orange mousses are AMAZING. So amazing in fact, I'm going to make them again for our Christmas Day dessert this year for all the pudding haters in the family (which is pretty much everyone except me and my Father in Law!). The most difficult part of the recipe is melting the chocolate, so it's a brilliant recipe to have up your sleeve whatever your level of ability in the kitchen.

I love Terry's chocolate orange, so I needed no excuses to buy a 'few' extra for recipe development purposes. However, if you can't get hold of a proper chocolate orange, you can use any other orange flavoured dark chocolate instead. Don't worry if you don't normally like dark chocolate either, because when it's been combined with the cream and condensed milk it really mellows the bitterness. My kids, who aren't massive fans of dark chocolate, gobbled them up and asked for seconds.

An added bonus with these mousses is that they are also suitable for people that can't eat raw egg....because they don't have any in.  A real winner on many levels and I know you are going to love them. We certainly do.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE CHOCOLATE ORANGE MOUSSES

  • For a boozy version add a splash of orange liqueur instead of the orange juice in the recipe.
  • The recipe can be easily doubled to feed a crowd and the mousse can be served in a large dish rather than individual ramekins if you prefer. 
  • The mousses can be made up to three days ahead, perfect for the busy Christmas period.
  • For extra decadence, serve the mousses with Cornish clotted cream.

  3. Stir 1/3 of the cream into the cooled chocolate mixture and stir then gradually fold the chocolate cream into the whipped cream mixture before adding in the orange juice.
  4. Spoon into 6 ramekins and chill for 1 hour (or up to 3 days). Serve with a segment of chocolate orange and a dusting of icing sugar.
