This recipe sounds like an absolute dessert dream!

Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate (70%)

  • 1 x 400g tin of black pitted cherries in syrup

  • 200ml double cream

  • 4 large free-range eggs

  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar

Method

  • 1.

    Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, then remove to cool for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, simmer the cherries and their syrup in a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat until thick, then remove.

  • 2.

    Whip the cream to very soft peaks. Separate the eggs, add the yolks to the cream with the sugar, and whisk to combine. Add a pinch of sea salt to the whites and, with a clean whisk, beat until super-stiff. Fold the cooled chocolate into the cream, then very gently fold that through the egg whites with a spatula.

  • 3.

    Divvy up the mousse between six glasses or bowls, interspersing the cherries and syrup throughout, and finishing with a few nice cherries on top.
