  • 85 g Egg Yolk
  • 12 g Caster Sugar
  • 90 ml Whole Milk
  • 4 g Gelatine Sheets
  • 195 g Valrhona Dulcey Chocolate melted
  • 225 ml Double Cream whipped


  • Place the gelatine sheets in a bowl of cold water and allow to soften.
  • Mix the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl, until they are pale and creamy.
  • Heat the milk in a saucepan and bring it to a boil, then pour it over the egg yolk mixture and whisk until combined.
  • Return the mixture to the pan and cook until thickened and a thermometer reads 82C.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the bloomed gelatine then strain it over the melted Dulcey chocolate.
  • Mix until smooth and creamy then cool to room temperature and fold in the whipped cream.
  • Take a 6 cavity semi-sphere mould and fill about a 1/3rd with Dulcey mousse, using a small palette knife spread the mousse up the sides of the mould ensuring none of the mould can be seen.
