Whether it's for a special occasion or simply as a nice finish to a Yom Tov meal, this orange chocolate mousse is sure to please. If you love chocolate and orange together, this one's for you!! No one will ever notice its sugar free!!
- sugar free semi sweet chocolate - 6 1/4 oz (180 g) ( or 60% or 70% dark chocolate)
- orange juice - 5 oz (150 ml) freshly squeezed or pure (no sugar added)
- eggs - 6 , seperated
- ground almond or a slice of an orange for garnish -
Melt the chocolate in a small pot over very low heat. Keep stirring to make sure it doesnt't burn. Add the juice to the chocolate and keep stirring until it forms a creamy texture. It could take quite a while. Remove from fire and add the yolks one at a time. Beat the egg whites in a mixer until stiff and gently add the chocolate mixture. Pour the chocolate mixture into small dishes; freeze. sprinkle with ground nuts before serving. Note: if you want a more intense orange flavour you could add some orange zest into the chocolate mousse.
