Easy Chai-Spiced Dark Chocolate Orange Mousse for One
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 1 serving
Chai tea and essential orange oil beautifully accentuate the flavor notes of dark chocolate in this Easy Chai-Spiced Dark Chocolate Orange Mousse for One.
  1. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or double boiler.
  2. Whisk the tea and orange essential oil into the melted chocolate.
  3. Place the bowl of chocolate over a slightly larger bowl of ice water and whisk until thickened like mousse, which will take about 5 minutes if you’re whisking by hand. If you over-whip and the mousse becomes grainy, reheat the chocolate mixture and start whisking again.
  4. You can serve it immediately or refrigerate. Note that after refrigerating it will stiffen a bit and may need to be re-whipped to smooth it out before serving.
