Chocolate Chantilly is a special Chocolate Mousse. What makes it so special? Read on… You may not know this but chocolate is like oil. Have you ever heard the saying, “never mix oil and water”? Well, the same has been said about chocolate as well. As a Chocolate Lover I have read countless articles that mixing precious chocolate with water is a big no-no!
They also say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks so don’t call me an old dog because I’m learning some new tricks about chocolate! I just tried an impressive easy chocolate dessert lovingly called Chocolate Chantilly. Chocolate Chantilly is actually a super easy Chocolate Mousse that has only two ingredients – Chocolate and Water. Mon Dieu!
- 265 grams (9.35 ounces) good quality bittersweet chocolate (70% cocoa solids), coarsely chopped
- 240 ml (1 cup) water
- 4 tablespoons caster (superfine granules) sugar, optional
- 1 tablespoon liqueur (Grand Marnier, Baileys, Frangelico), optional (reduce water by 1 tablespoon if using)
