What you will need:6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped3 egg yolks1/4 cup mild-flavored extra-virgin olive oil3 Tbs. warm water1/4 tsp. sea salt2 egg whites1/8 tsp. cream of tartar1/4 cup sugarChocolate shavings for serving (optional)
How to prepare:
Put the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over but not touching barely simmering water in a saucepan. Stir the chocolate until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the egg yolks, olive oil, warm water and salt until well blended.
In a clean bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium-high speed, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until frothy. Add the sugar and continue beating until the mixture forms soft peaks. Fold about one-third of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until no white streaks remain. Gently fold in the remaining whites until well incorporated.
Spoon the mousse into 4 custard cups, dividing evenly. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours or up to overnight. Sprinkle with the chocolate shavings and serve immediately.
