White Chocolate Mousse & Kiwi Sauce Recipe

To Drink: - Sweet white wine.

Level of Difficulty: Medium difficult

Preparation Time: 1 hour + setting time

Prepare in Advance: Yes

Step 1

Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 10 mins to soften. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot, but not boiling, water. Allow to cool but not to set.

Step 2

Beat the egg and egg yolk in a stainless steel bowl over a pan of hot, but not boiling, water until thickened. Squeeze the gelatine leaves and stir into the warm egg mixture until melted. Allow to cool while still beating.

Step 3

Add the melted chocolate to the mixture, a little at a time, until the mixture is smooth and even. Stir in the liqueur.

Step 4

Whip the cream until thick and carefully fold into the chocolate mixture.

Step 5

Put the mousse in the fridge for 2 hours, until it has set.

Step 6

Meanwhile, make the sauce. Peel the kiwi fruit and pure them in a mixer or food processor. Add icing sugar to taste, if required. Keep the sauce cold until ready to serve.

Step 7

Pour a little sauce on 4 individual dishes. Shape the mousse into egg-shaped balls, using two warm tablespoons, and place them on top of the sauce.

Step 8

Garnish with a few lemon leaves, sliced strawberries or slices of kiwi fruit.
