Welcome to our first Recipe blog!
The World Wide Web is full of wonderful recipes, but realistically, its an art to be able to read recipes properly, or better saying, read in between the lines to get them right. The keen master chefs out there, surely see themselves wondering, "why you need to add more sugar on certain recipes that contains chocolate?"
How about you try this, VERY SIMPLE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE RECIPE, with NO EXTRA SUGAR.
Our Belgian Delights or Daintree Estates Dark Couverture chocolate buttons with up to 70% cocoa, is what we recommend, its a fine smooth chocolate and its Australian. No compound or baking chocolate please, which is full of vegetal oils (palm oil) and NO cocoa butter! (It’s NOT REAL chocolate)
You can try making this recipe, anytime you have some spare eggs at home, specially if your free range backyard chickens are happy and laying too many!!!
