    Heston's Two-ingredient chocolate mousse

    “Sometimes rules are made to be broken. Water is supposed to be the enemy of chocolate but here it’s the key to a mousse that’s astonishingly simple to make and, since no cream is involved, has a gratifyingly intense chocolatey flavour.”


    350g dark chocolate, 70% minimum cocoa solids, finely chopped 
    270ml hot water


    1 Place the chocolate in a bowl and add 270ml of hot water. Using a whisk, mix until the chocolate has dissolved.

    2 Place the bowl over an iced water bath and whisk until the mixture begins to thicken.

    3 Remove the bowl from the iced water bath and continue whisking until the mixture just becoming soft set. Serve immediately.

    Cooks’ tip
    If the mousse becomes too set, just sit it over a bain marie for a few seconds to loosen it up.
