  • 3 ounces - dark chocolate
  • 3 - medium eggs, separated
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons - artificial sweetener, to taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons - finely grated orange zest, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons - brandy, level tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoons - cocoa powder, level tsp, to serve
  • Directions:

    Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a large, heatproof bowl. Set the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water to melt the chocolate. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly at room temperature.

    Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites in a large bowl until stiff, but not too dry.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sweetener, orange zest, and brandy; then spoon into the melted chocolate, mixing well.

    Using a metal spoon, fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture until well combined.

    Divide between 4 individual ramekins or sundae glasses and chill for 3–4 hours, or until set. Before serving, lightly dust each mousse with cocoa powder.
