๐Ÿ’ญ Thoughts and ideas

It is super easy to prepare ahead, so perfect for your dinner parties. If you want to make it more festive, add some fresh berries and some fresh mint on top.

You can of course adjust the sweetness by adding more agave, or maple syrup. I used agave in this recipe, but maple will go beautiful as well. Just make sure you blend it for a good few minutes as this will really help it’s texture.

๐Ÿท Wine pairing

Wine pairing; Chocolate and wine… Yummy!! Think Sweet, sweeter, sweetest. Chocolate needs to be matched with sweet wines.

A vintage port, a Madeira, or a sweet sherry works magic. If you happen to be in France, get a really good banyuls from the Southern Roussillon area. The reflecting Mediterranean sun makes for beautiful sweet wines there.

Instructions

  • Scoop the mixture into glasses or cups and leave in the fridge for minimum 1 hour.
  • Cut or rasp the confit ginger in small pieces and drizzle over the chocolate mousse.

Notes

You can add some of the confit ginger into the mousse, this will give a beautiful warmth to the mousse. Mind that the texture of the mousse will be slightly less smooth than, as you will have the little crunch from the ginger in the mousse.
I actually quiet like a little crunch in a smooth chocolate mousse, but some might prefer to keep the mousse smooth as velvet.
