Ballycastle and Dark Chocolate Mousse a luxuriously indulgent chocolate dessert. Perfect for dinner parties or St Patricks Day today. Who doesn’t loves a good chocolate dessert? I personally love really rich desserts especially chocolate ones. Neil however is not a chocolate fan. I would share with the kids but seen as its laced with booze I better not.
We are an Irish family and always celebrate St Patricks Day my Grandad was the head of the family and always enjoyed a good whiskey drink. We used to always meet up as a family and have a great night out. I have many great memories. Now all my aunties and uncle meet up and have a toast to my Grandma and Grandad and celebrate the goods times. My mum and her brothers and sisters are all Irish and we are proper Irish family, very close nit and are proud of our Green family name.

Break up the chocolate and put in a ovenproof dish, put the dish over a pan of boiling water and melt the chocolate – allow to cool slightly.
Meanwhile separate the yolk from the egg white – put the yolk in a small bowl with the Ballycastle and the cream – whisk well.
Put the egg white in a separate bowl, whisk till the egg white is softly peaked, slowly whisk in the caster sugar till it becomes glossy and thick.
Add the previously prepared egg yolk and Ballycastle mixture to the melted chocolate. Then fold the egg white mixture in, a spoonful at a time.
Spoon the mixture into two small glasses and refrigerate – decorate with some fresh mint as you serve.
