FIVE-MINUTE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
Serves 6 7 oz semisweet chocolate (70% cocoa solids), broken into pieces 4 egg whites 3 to 4 tablespoons superfine sugar, to taste ⅔ cup plain yogurt Fresh raspberries, to serve
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water, stirring occasionally. Alternatively, melt the chocolate in a microwave. Let cool slightly.
Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the sugar, a spoonful at a time.
Mix the yogurt into the melted chocolate (it will start to thicken immediately, so work fairly quickly), then fold in the egg white mixture, a third at a time.
Spoon the mousse into 6 small bowls or glasses and serve immediately or chill to serve later (we give you 5 minutes!). Serve with fresh raspberries and small spoons.
WHY WE LOVE IT Deliciously decadent, and not a drop of heavy cream in sight! This quickie mousse uses plain yogurt for its voluptuous creaminess and whisked egg whites for lift. Yes, there’s some sugar – use 3 tablespoons if you prefer a truly dark spoonful or 4 if you have a sweet tooth. Do serve in small bowls or glasses, though; this is surprisingly rich and indulgent and will easily satisfy six chocoholics.
