Yields1 ServingPrep Time30 minsTotal Time50 mins

Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Mousse is a grown-up treat, pairing two earthy flavors - dark chocolate and olive oil - into a transcendent dessert.

 1 cup 70% dark chocolate chips
 ½ cup high quality olive oil
 4 eggs
 ¼ tsp sea salt
 ¼ cup sugar

In the microwave or over a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate and the olive oil together. Set aside to cool.


In a medium bowl, whip the whites of 4 eggs and a pinch of salt with a hand mixer until soft peaks form.


In a large bowl, mix the egg yolks, sea salt, and sugar with a hand mixer until pale and frothy.


Using a rubber spatula, slowly stream in the melted chocolate and fold in slowly.


Add in a third of the beaten egg whites and mix thoroughly. Do not worry about deflating the egg whites.


Gently fold in the next third of the beaten egg whites, until fully mixed through. Finally, fold in the last third, leaving behind any liquid at the bottom of the whipped egg whites


Divide the mixture evenly among cups. Chill for 20 minutes and serve with whipped cream to garnish.
