White Chocolate Mousse recipe with a hint of orange

Written by on March 6, 2018 in Desserts

Indulge in this delicious chocolate-orange desert, silky-smooth, lusciously decadent and oh-so easy to make!

Ingredients for 3

220g (1 cup) white chocolate
250ml cream
Zest of 1 orange plus orange for segments
2 egg yolks
25ml orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec)
50g (1/4 cup) dark chocolate, to grate as garnish

Method

  1. Place chocolate in a bain-marie (bowl over the top of a saucepan with boiling water) until it is melted. Doing it this way helps stop the chocolate from splitting.
  2. Then whisk the egg yolks and Grand Marnier in a clean bain-marie until they’re fluffy and pale in colour then remove from heat. This is called a sabayon.
  3. Add the orange zest to the sabayon, mix well and then fold into the melted white chocolate.
  4. Whip the cream in a clean bowl until you can create a soft peak, then fold this into the white chocolate mixture.
  5. Pour the mixture into the glasses you want to serve this delicious desert in, and chill for at least two hours.
  6. To serve, segment your orange and place a couple of pieces on top of each glass, then finely grate a little dark chocolate over the top to really finish it off in style…
