Run, Eat Chocolate Mousse, Run - Happy Valentine's Day

I couldn't resist sharing this recipe for Valentine's Day.   The plan is run Saturday morning, eat chocolate mousse Saturday night and up Sunday for another walk run.

This chocolate mousse recipe is super easy to make and yes, guys you can make it for your special loved one!

  • 300g quality dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 300ml thickened cream plus extra whipped cream to serve
  • Grated chocolate to serve

Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water  Stir chocolate until melted. Remove bowl from heat and set aside to cool slightly.

Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric beaters for  approximately 5 minutes, or until mixture is pale, thick and doubled in volume. With spatula fold in cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until combined.

In a separate bowl, whip cream until thickened (be careful not to over-beat). Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, keeping the mixture as light as possible. Spoon into 6 serving glasses and chill in fridge for at least 1 hour. Remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving,  top with extra whipped cream (optional - you may not need extra cream as this recipe is super rich) and grated chocolate to serve. Happy Valentine's Day everyone xx

Happy Friday

Don't we all love Friday.

Feeling good today.   Same walk/run but feeling more confident, not huffing and puffing as much, still a hard slog but you do feel better for it.

Breaking it up with a yoga class tomorrow.

Happy weekend everyone.
