Step by step recipe

1 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #1Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C).

Take 200 g liquid cream out of the fridge.

Lay a sheet of cooking parchment on a baking sheet and spread the 100 g ground hazelnuts out on this.
3 min.
2 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #2Toast in the oven for 20 minutes. This dry roasting brings out the full flavour of the hazelnuts.

Leave to cool.
20 min.
3 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #3Heat a bain-marie and melt 280 g chocolate. 7 min.
4 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #4When the chocolate is completely melted, turn off the heat and add 200 g liquid cream (not too cold).

Mix well.
2 min.
5 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #5Fold in 100 g egg yolk, then the toasted ground hazelnuts. 4 min.
6 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #6Beat 200 g egg white with 1 pinch fine (or table) salt. 5 min.
7 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #7Important: the egg white should not be beaten as stiff as for meringue, but only to the "soft" stage, where it just about sticks to the whisk.

This is the secret of a successful chocolate mousse.

Finish by folding in 100 g caster sugar.
2 min.
8 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #8Start by pouring a little of the chocolate mixture into the beaten egg whites and mix in gently (we want to keep the mousse light and fluffy). 3 min.
9 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #9Then pour this mixture into the rest of the egg whites and fold in gently. 3 min.
10 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #10To make transferring the mousse into dishes easier, you can use a forcing bag.
11 Chocolate mousse with hazelnuts : Photo of step #11Stand the dishes on a cloth laid on a baking sheet. This makes it easier to move them quickly without them sliding about.

Fill the dishes and cover with plastic film. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
6 min.

Remarks

You can keep a small quantity of the ground toasted hazelnuts back to use for decorating the top. Another option for decorating: a little candied orange or grapefruit peel or candied fruit.
