chocolate mousse

300g /1 ½ cups dark chocolate/bittersweet, roughly chopped
3 eggs, fresh and organic
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon heaped cocoa powder, sifted
300 ml /1¼ cups thick cream, plus extra whipped cream to serve
¼ tsp cinnamon

To Serve

Grated chocolate, strawberries, raspberries and cream



Grate about 3 Tbsp chocolate and reserve. Break the rest into small, even-sized pieces and melt in a bowl placed over a pan of simmering water/ a bain marie, stirring constantly.
Remove bowl from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric mixer for 5 minutes, or until mixture is pale, thick and fluffy.
Fold in cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until combined.
In a chilled bowl, whip cream until thickened.
Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, trying to keep the mixture as light as possible. Do not over work the mousse.
Spoon the chocolate mixture into a serving bowl or divide between 6 serving glasses.
Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set.
Serve topped with grated chocolate, strawberries/raspberries and cream, if desired. For the minimalist effect, just dust with some cocoa, and  voilà!
