1/2 cup (125ml) of Camilo extra virgin olive oil (delicious with the blood orange or lime & lemon infused oils)
150gm good quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
4 eggs, separated
125gm caster sugar
Whipped cream to serve
Place the chocolate in a bowl over a pan over simmering water (making sure bowl doesn't touch water). When the chocolate has melted, slowly stir in the olive oil. Remove from heat.
Place egg yolks and half the sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale and thick, then add the chocolate mixture and combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form, slowly adding remaining sugar. Using a large metal spoon or spatula, gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture.
Spoon into individual bowls or cups and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Serve with cream and your favourite berries, julienne orange peel, or shaves of chocolate.
This quick and easy recipe is delicious with fresh strawberries or other fresh, seasonal fruit.
