Join Professional Chef Suzy Scherr as she teaches us how to make Easy Olive Oil Chocolate Mousse for Passover. 

Easy Olive Oil Chocolate Mousse for Passover Ingredient List
6 oz bittersweet chocolate, preferably 70% cocoa solids
3 large eggs
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup espresso or very strong coffee, at room temperature, or 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
2 tablespoons Chambord. Cointreau or Grand Marnier (optional)
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Raspberries – optional (for garnish)

Directions:
Melt the chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave or in a saucepan over very low heat. Let cool to lukewarm.

In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the egg yolks and sugar on medium speed until smooth. Beat in the coffee and Chambord just to combine. Then stir in the melted chocolate. Add the olive oil and mix well.

Thoroughly wash the beaters so that they are free of grease. In another medium bowl, beat the egg whites until almost stiff. Gently fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and whisk until patches of white disappear. Repeat, whisking the remaining egg whites into the chocolate mixture, 1/3 at a time, until patches of white disappear. Do not overmix.

Transfer the mousse into a pretty bowl or individual dessert dishes, cover and refrigerate until ready to eat. Serve cold with raspberries. Makes 6 servings.
