Chocolate Mousse
Rich and Delicious French Classic
3 eggs at room temperature, separated
30 gms (1 oz.) UNSALTED butter
200 gms (7 oz) good quality dark chocolate

Whip the cream and set aside.

Melt chocolate in a bowl over simmering water. Remove bowl from heat and stir in butter.
When butter has melted, stir in the three egg yolks, one at a time. Place mixture in a large bowl, cover and leave to cool.

Beat egg whites into soft peaks.
Using a metal spoon, fold the egg whites and cream in two stages into the chocolate mixture.

Pour into individual serving dishes and refrigerate several hours.
