Ingredients

Number of serving: 8
1 liter Woolworths Chocolate Mousse

8 ClemenGold Easy Peelers or small oranges

2 tablespoons orange liqueur

8 sprigs of mint

zest of 1 orange

1 slab 70% Lindt chocolate

1 teaspoon grated orange zest

2 tablespoons caster sugar


½ cup cream

2 tablespoons orange liqueur

Preparation

  • Wash the fruit and dry with a clean towel. Cut a small lid off easy orange. Carefully remove all flesh from the inside of the fruit.
  • If using liqueur, fold it into the mousse and for an informal presentation, spoon the mixture into the hollow fruit. Chill for overnight for best effect. Decorate with a sprig of mint and some orange zest.
  • Break chocolate in pieces and melt in a bowl over boiling water. Combine the orange zest, egg yolks and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until light and creamy.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture and fold in with a spatula until it is properly mixed. In two separate bowls, beat the egg whites until stiff and also the cream until it forms soft peaks.
  • Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, take care not to over mix. Now do the same with the egg whites. If you are using liqueur, this is the time to also fold it into the mousse.
  • Spoon the mousse into the hollow oranges and chill overnight or for at least 2 hours. Serve with chocolate shavings and a sprig of mint.
