Prep Time: 30 minutes (includes 20 minutes setting time)

Serves: 8

The simplest chocolate mousse recipe ever. Using a base of only two ingredients; coconut cream and chocolate, you couldn’t get a more simple yet decadent dessert. The jaffa flavour can be polarizing but when using good quality rich dark chocolate, you literally can’t go wrong… the orange flavour fits in seamlessly and adds a natural citrusy sweetness. Plus these chocolate covered dried mandarin slices are insane! The dehydrating process means the flavours are concentrated and yes you can eat the skin and pith… In fact I think it actually intensifies the flavour!

Ingredients

270ml coconut cream

100g dark chocolate

10 drops orange essential oil

Raw cacao powder, for serving


Choc covered mandarins

3 mandarins, sliced thinly

40g dark chocolate


Method

  1. To make the choc covered mandarins, place mandarin slices in a dehydrator and dehydrate for 12 hours.

  2. Melt 40g of dark chocolate in a double boiler (a small bowl over a pot of gently simmering water). Dip dried mandarins in the chocolate and place on a tray in the fridge to set.

  3. To make the mousse, gently heat the coconut cream in a small pot over a low heat. Pour into a bowl and toss in the chocolate. Stir until chocolate is melted into the coconut cream and it’s a soft and glossy texture.

  4. Stir in the orange essential oil and place in the fridge to set for 15–30 minutes, depending on the consistency you like and the temperature of where you live!

  5. To serve, top with the prepared mandarin slices, extra squares of Loving Earth Dark Chocolate and a sprinkle of cacao powder.
