  • 300g dark or milk cooking chocolate

METHOD

  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a metal heat-proof bowl placed over a saucepan of boiling water. Stir as chocolate is melting. Remove from heat when melted to cool slightly.
  • Butter four 3-inch diameter ramekins or 7-8 ounce canning jars. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (hand mixer may also be used) beat egg whites on high until frothy, add the lemon juice.
  • Continue to beat egg whites, slowly adding the granulated sugar a few tablespoons at a time (allow to mix in before adding more). Beat eggs until stiff but not dry.
  • Stir egg yolks into the chocolate. Gently stir in a third of the egg white mixture into the chocolate.
  • Combine the chocolate mixture into the bowl with the egg white mixture and gently mix them together completely.
  • Spoon the mousse mixture into the prepared ramekins or jars and gently tap the containers on a countertop to release any bubbles.
  • Cover and fully chill before serving.
