To make the mousse all that is required is 300 grams of good quality dark chocolate roughly chopped, three eggs, 1/4 cup caster sugar, one tablespoon of sifted cocoa powder and 300ml thickened cream.

Start by placing the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melting it over a pan filled with water. Set it aside to cool slightly before continuing.

Then place the eggs and sugar into a large bowl and beat them together with electric beaters or a whisk for five minutes or until the mixture is pale, thick and doubled in volume. 

Fold in the cocoa powder and cooled chocolate until well combined.
