Olive Oil Chocolate Mousse
What you will need:
  • 6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup mild-flavored extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. warm water
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Chocolate 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.

    Serves 4.
