Serves 6-8


2 1/2 cups whipping cream 600 ml

12 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces 340 g.

5 Tbsp. fragrant honey 75 ml


In a heavy-bottomed pot, bring 1 cup (240 mL) of the cream to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate and honey. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Scrape into a large bowl and cool, stirring occasionally.

Beat 1 cup (240 mL) of the cream until soft peaks form. Fold into the cooled chocolate mixture. Divide among six 1-cup (240 mL) ramekins, wine glasses or tea cups. Chill for at least two hours or overnight.

Beat the remaining 1/2 cup (120 mL) cream to soft peaks. Place a small dollop on each mousse before serving.
