Baileys Choco Mousse
Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
- 7 oz Baileys Original
- 2 medium eggs, separated
- 5 oz dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 tsp unsalted butter
- 8.5 oz double cream
- Chocolate shavings to garnish
Melt the chocolate, allow to cool slightly then beat in the egg yolks and butter.
Lightly whip the cream and Baileys. Then fold half into the chocolate mix.
Whisk the egg whites until just stiff, now fold with the chocolate mixture. Add pieces of chocolate until it melts.
Spoon half the chocolate mousse into four glasses, followed by some chocolate shavings and then half the cream.
Repeat the layers and top with the remaining chocolate shavings.
Put it in the fridge for three hours. No picking! (well, maybe just a bit…) Serve with a flourish – to some impressed oohs and ahs.
