Baking & Sweet Things
Place chocolate, butter and juice in a bowl and microwave or stir over hot water until melted.
Whisk in the cocoa and wattleseed, then the egg yolks and Cointreau. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, beat 100mL of the cream until soft peaks form – set aside.
Beat the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form, then add the sugar and beat until smooth and glossy.
Fold the whites into the chocolate mixture.
Also fold in the cream, and when completely mixed, transfer to a serving bowl or individual bowls, and refrigerate.
Add the lemon myrtle to the remaining cream, beat until thick. (A tablespoon of icing sugar will help thicken the cream.)
Let stand for minimum of 6 hours to allow flavours to infuse.
Serve the cream with the mousse.
