Hot Samoan Boys Chilli Chocolate Orange Mousse


This is a very special dessert. The Hot Samoan Boys Chilli Sauce really brings out the chocolate and orange flavours. 

Serves 6


250 gm bar of dark chocolate  I used Whittaker's 50% cocoa)
125 ml water
3 eggs separated
3 tablespoons of castor sugar
1 tablespoon of finely grated orange rind
1 tablespoon of Grand Marnier/Cointreau/orange juice
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of Hot Samoan Boys Chilli sauce


Break the chocolate bar into small pieces.
Heat the chocolate with the water in a saucepan.
Stir until it is melted.
Keep on simmering the mixture for about 2 minutes until it thickens slightly.
Take it off the heat and let it cool slightly for a minute.
Beat in the egg yolks one at a time. The hot chocolate mixture will cook them slightly.
Beat in one tablespoon of Grand Marnier/Cointreau/orange juice
Beat the egg whites until stiff.
Gradually beat  the sugar into the egg whites until the mixture is glossy.
Fold the egg whites lightly into the chocolate mixture.
Put the mousse into small bowls or glasses.

Leave to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
