Chocolate Mousse

I stupidly gave up chocolate for lent but had some friends over for dinner so thought I would torture myself by feeding them this delicious chocolate mousse!

Serves 4

225g good quality dark chocolate broken up
70g butter in pieces
350ml double cream
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon of Amaretto
2 tablespoons of honey

Slowly melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over simmering water, when melted remove off the heat.
In a separate bowl, semi whip the cream until soft peaks but no further.
In a third bowl whisk the eggs and honey until light and fluffy, around 5 mins.
Then fold the Amaretto into the eggs along with the melted chocolate and cream. Fold gently so not to lose too much air and when it is all mixed together pour into wine glasses or a big bowl that you can later spoon out.
Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
