Chocolate Mousse

You will need

2 packs (18g) Fruit Bowl Blackcurrant Fruit Flakes
170g good-quality dark chocolate (minimum 60% cocoa solids)
7 free-range egg whites
¼ tsp lemon juice
3 tbsp dark chocolate powder
40g caster sugar


1 Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water.

2 Add the Fruit Flakes to the chocolate and stir.

3 Leave to cool.

4 Whisk the egg whites and lemon juice until they form soft peaks.

5 Add the sugar and continue to whisk until the egg whites form firm peaks.

6 Fold one-third of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until well combined.

7 Carefully fold in the remaining egg whites, making sure to keep as much air in the mixture as possible.

8 Spoon or pipe the mousse mixture into a martini glass or bowl.

9 Chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours, or until set.

10 Serve with cream and a scattering of extra Fruit Flakes.
