Recipe for Chocolate Mousse with Baileys

Method

  1. Place the chocolate, cream and the Baileys in a saucepan, and if you have an AGA, leave it at the back until the chocolate melts, otherwise just melt the mixture very gently and slowly.  Set aside
  2. Place the egg yolks and sugar in the bowl, and whisk at speed for about a minute, until well blended.
  3. Add the chocolate mixture and whisk on full speed for about 20 seconds, then transfer the mixture to a large bowl.
  4. Whisk the egg whites in a separate, clean bowl until stiff.  Fold them into the chocolate mixture and then pour into 6 tea cups.  Chill for about 4 hours.
  5. Dust lightly with cocoa powder and decorate with a raspberry or strawberry.  Pretty tasty!
