Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
7 377/400 Gram(g)  semisweet chocolate, chopped
6 Teaspoon(t)  orange liqueur or brandy
353/400 Gram(g)  unsalted (sweet) butter, cut into small pieces
4   eggs, separated
18 Teaspoon(t)  whipping cream
14 Teaspoon (Metric)(tsp)  cream of tartar
9 Teaspoon(t)  caster (superfine) sugar


Place the chocolate and 4 tbsp of water in a heavy pan. Melt over a low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove the pan from heat and whisk in the liqueur and butter. With an electric mixer, beat the egg yolks for 2 to 3 minutes, until thick and creamy, then slowly beat into the melted chocolate until well blended. Set aside. Whip the cream until soft peaks form and stir a spoonful into the chocolate to lighten it. Fold in the remaining cream. In a clean, grease free bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until they are frothy. Add the cream of tartar and continue beating until they form soft peaks. Gradually sprinkle over the sugar, while continuing to beat until the egg whites are stiff and very glossy. Using a rubber spatula or large metal spoon, stir a quarter of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to slacken, then gently fold in the remaining egg whites, cutting down to the bottom, along the sides and up to the top in a semicircular motion until they are just combined. (Don't worry about a few white streaks.) Gently spoon the mousse into a 2 liter dish, or into eight individual dishes. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, until set and chilled. If desired, spoon a little creme fraiche or sour cream over the mousse, and decorate with chocolate curls.
