Easy Chocolate Moose

Chocolate Moose

320g (12oz) strong dark chocolate - 70% coco solids min
30g (1oz) unsalted butter
6 eggs
pinch of salt


1 - Separate the eggs, placing the whites into a large bowl.

2 - Break the chocolate into small pieces I like to use a chefs knife to cut it up as it helps with the melting,

3 - Put the chocolate in glass bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Add the butter and allow both to gently melt.

4 - Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and whisk till they are just becoming stiff.

5 - Take the yolks and mix them up with a fork.

6 - When the chocolate and butter have melted allow them to cool for a couple of minutes then stir in the yolks.

7 - Fold in the egg whites with a metal spoon or spatula in three to four batches until fully mixed.

7 - Pour into ramekins or glasses and refrigerate for a couple of hours to set.

This is great topped with a little fresh whipped cream, or served with Amaretto Biscuits.
