Chocolate Mousse

This one is courtesy of Rachel Allen and like all the best ones, you'll have to wait for a photo - went too quick. Great recipe for the carbs (thanks to the high-cocoa chocolate and cheese) but not so great for the fats - but then you're only supposed to eat a small ramekin's worth. In theory.
There are other mousse recipes about but this has a nice kick (thanks to the brandy, or cognac) and mascarpone keeps for maybe a month in the fridge so you'll likely have the ingredients when the need arises.

  • 100g dark chocolate (broken into pieces, or dark chocolate drops)
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp brandy
  • 3 eggs
  • 250g mascarpone
I've adjusted the quantities to reduce the sugar (no difference) and upped the egg to make it lighter. This makes about 8-9 ramekins-worth and each weighs in at about 11 carbs so a firm favourite.
