Our most sought after recipe from our Dessert Selection is our Chocolate Mousse. This tasty not too sweet not to sickly mousse is Chef Nadene's recipe that has been kept since her German Head Chef passed it to her during the Apprenticeship days back in the 80's. Although some of the ingredients have been altered to suit our Organic Healthy approach to Quality Food the principle and methods are unchanged.
"It is a simple recipe" Chef Nade states "but tasty and easy to prepare".
You must use at least 70% Cocoa and I prefer Organic Cocoa Chocolate. For those who don't have a supplier Aldi have a great Organic Cocoa Chocolate that is not too expensive. As you can see there is no added Sugar in this recipe which makes a healthier option to the French Style.
