Adrian was on the Debbie McGee show on Radio Berkshire last Sunday. They asked us to bring in some samples so I made some miniature chocolate pots to share. Debbie is a keen cook so I was very please when she said that the chocolate mouse “Exceeds any I have every had”. It is all down to the lovely flavour of our chocolate.
- 75g Mortimer chocolate powder
- 25g butter
- 1 tablespoon hot water
- 2 large eggs
Melt the chocolate and butter over a pan of barely simmering water.
Separate the eggs and put the egg whites into a clean dry bowl.
Mix the egg yolks with the hot water, then beat into the melted chocolate.
Whisk the egg whites, until they form soft peaks.
Beat 1 tablespoon of egg white into the chocolate, repeat with a second tablespoon of egg white.
Fold in the remaining egg white.
Pour into 3 ramekins, or small coffee cups and place in the fridge for several hours to set.
I have added no alcohol to this recipe, so that you can enjoy the full flavour of the chocolate.
If you want to make this dairy-free just omit the butter
