I found this scrumptious Chocolate Orange Mousse recipe from TK member Riley, who paired the classic flavors of orange and chocolate to create this easy dream of a dessert. The best part is that you can make them in Mason jars of many sizes instead of ramekins and simply screw a lid on top and save them for any day of the week.

Here’s what you’ll need: heavy whipping cream, white wine vinegar, an orange, eggs (separated), dark chocolate, and sugar or honey (I substituted honey for the sugar the recipe calls for).

Whisk the heavy cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form.

Description

Light and airy orange-scented chocolate mousse.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Orange Zest
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Orange Juice
  • 3 whole Eggs, Separated
  • ⅛ teaspoons White Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 8 ounces, weight Bittersweet Chocolate, Chopped

Preparation Instructions

Beat the heavy cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add the orange zest and orange juice and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

Beat the egg whites and vinegar in a separate bowl until frothy. Gradually add the sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a large bowl placed over a pot of simmering water (or a double boiler), stirring until completely smooth.

Our only daughter is getting married April 27, 2014!! Such a bittersweet exciting time. We are looking forward to her starting her new life and yet her daddy is so sad. (HE DOES KNOW THAT HE WILL ALWAYS BE HER MAIN MAN)

Orange & Chocolate! One of my husbands favorite combos. I just may have to whip this up this evening for a New Years dessert toast! :)
