january: lisa’s chocolate meringue and mousse cake

One of the things I love about chocolate is that it can be used in so many ways, and you can create so many different textures using it. And really, who doesn’t like chocolate!

I created this dessert because it’s something that can be made well in advance, it’s relatively simple, but the taste is sweet and rich. And it will keep fresh in the fridge for around 4 days. So if you’re short on time for your next dinner party, make this a day ahead and you’ll be set for dessert.

Inspired by the classic French chocolate concorde, it’s the perfect combination of crispy meringue on the outside, chewy on the inside, and surrounded by a smooth, rich chocolate mouse. The ultimate chocolate indulgence.

This Chocolate Meringue and Mousse Cake is decadent on it’s own, however it can also be dressed up with fresh fruits in season, served with a dollop of freshly whipped cream, or topped with shaved chocolate for a more fancy finish. I must admit, when I served this to my friends, they just wanted to get into it as quickly as possible so it was basically cut and served right away. I guarantee this is plate-licking good! Enjoy!
