This luxurious warm chocolate mousse recipe by Les 110 de Taillevent makes for a stunning finale to any meal. Serve with a quenelle of chocolate ice cream, or clotted cream ice cream if you’d prefer to lighten the intensity of the chocolate.

1. First melt the chocolate and the butter together in a bain-marie.

2. Then in a large bowl, mix the egg, egg yolk and sugar together until the paste becomes light and fluffy. Add in the melted chocolate.

3. Place the mix in a bowl or ramekins and bake at a low heat for 10 minutes.

4. Next, make the chocolate sauce. Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat at a low temperature for 10 minutes.

5. To serve, add a scoop of chocolate ice cream on top, then pour over the chocolate sauce for a nice contrast of textures.
