Chocolate Mousse

This is from a Jackie Magazine recipe from the 80s.

Serves 2 (but quantities increase well)

Melt 4oz of milk chocolate in a bowl (either microwave or over a pan of hot water). Can be cooking or eating chocolate.

Separate two eggs. Beat the yolks and add into the melted chocolate (mix fast and thoroughly).

(Fun way to separate eggs here)

Beat the two egg whites until they are stiff (do the 'upside-down bowl over head test' at your own risk), then fold into the chocolate mixture. (Use a metal spoon to fold: cut and lift it -not stir- to keep it light and fluffy)

Put it into whatever you are serving it in and chill for an hour or two.

Good to serve with some cream on and a bit of grated chocolate, or slices of kiwi fruit

Although it won't set quite as well with, this is also nice with a bit of rum mixed into the chocolate and yolk mix (NB Rum not included in the original recipe aimed at pre and early teens!)
