This good recipe I found at Roy Fares website, he makes the world’s most delicious desserts and all sorts of pastries.
I really love all kind of mousse, but nothing beats chocolate mousse, my number 1 favorite! :)

You need:

80 g chocolate 70%
80 g butter, salted
2 egg yolks
3 egg white
45 g of granulated sugar to the egg whites (0.5 cups)
25g caster sugar to the egg yolks (2 tbsp)

TOPPING

2.5 dl cream
50 g macadamia nuts (2 cups)
160g caster sugar (2 cups)
30 g butter (2 tablespoons)

DO THIS:

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees, hot air.

Break the chocolate into pieces and melt the butter over a water bath or in the microwave 30 seconds at a time.

Whisk the egg whites and sugar into a solid foam.

Whisk egg yolks and sugar to a fluffy cream. Fold in the chocolate mixture into the egg yolks with a spatula.

Pour half of the cream into the whipped egg white and stir a few laps, then add the rest of the cream and stir until it’s smooth.

Fill half the cream into 4 molds and bake in 10-12 minutes.

Let the molds cool down and then fill the rest of the cream. Let it stand in a refrigerator for about 2 hours. Take them out 15 minutes before serving.

Caramelized nuts

Sprinkle a thin layer of sugar in a dry, hot pan. When melted, pour on more and continue until all the sugar in the pan is melted. (Be careful not to burn the butter).

When the sugar got a nice caramel color, add all the nuts and stir gently with a wooden spoon, add the butter and make sure it blends well.

Pour everything over a parchment paper and let cool. Then chop the nuts.

Serve the dessert with whipped cream and the nuts.
