Jonas makes dessert!

I couldn't go past a $15 box of mandarins today. It was only when I filled one rather large bowl, and then another...and then a third that I started to think my locusts may not get through them as quickly as I thought.
The recipe search began with all sorts of tempting options!
Joe and I decided on chocolate mandarin mousse. Never heard of it?? Well it's one we kind of made up on our own.

Here's the explanation:

1, 2, 3 inhale!!!

The actual recipe:

125g dark chocolate
1 Tablespoon of mandarin juice (you could use orange juice instead)
4 eggs (separated)
300ml thickened cream.

You'll have to beat the egg white to soft peaks  (in case it wasn't clear in Joe's explanation).


  1. No matter how cute Joe is there is no way I will ever be convinced that chocolate with any kind of orange flavouring is a good thing.

    1. The truth is you actually couldn't even taste it!! Go ahead and make yourself a batch without the citrus- call if you need further instructions from the chef ;)
