1 slab 70% Lindt chocolate
1 tsp grated orange zest
2 Tbs caster sugar
3 eggs, separated
½ cup(125ml) cream
2 Tbs orange liqueur (Grand Manier)
Break chocolate in pieces and melt in a bowl over boiling water. Combine the orange zest, egg yolks and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until light and creamy.
Add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture and fold in with a spatula until it is properly mixed. In two separate bowls, beat the egg whites until stiff and also the cream until it forms soft peaks. Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, take care not to over mix. Now do the same with the egg whites. If you are using liqueur, this is the time to also fold it into the mousse. Spoon the mousse into the hollow oranges and chill overnight or for at least 2 hours. Serve with chocolate shavings and a sprig of mint.
