Chocolate and Olive Oil Mousse


Serves 8 to 10

Creamy and decadent, the chocolate in this delectable dessert hits the spot. Perfect for the chocoholics at your table.


Mix Together

  • 11 oz bittersweet chocolate (60% cacao)
  • 8 large eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup super fine sugar
  • 1/2 cup Ferrari-Carano olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Ferrari-Carano Eldorado Noir

Refrigerate and Garnish

  • 1 cup chocolate shavings
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Mix Together

In a double boiler, melt chocolate over low heat. Cool slightly.

Beat egg yolks with ½ cup sugar until light. Whisk in olive oil, Eldorado Noir and melted chocolate.

Using electric beater, whisk egg whites until soft peaks form. Add remaining sugar, whisking until stiff, but not dry. Fold egg whites into chocolate mixture so that no white streaks from egg white remain.

Refrigerate and Garnish

Spoon into individual dessert cups or glasses. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.

Garnish with chocolate shavings on top and dollop of whipping cream.
