Ingredients

110 g unsweetened (dark) chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 tbsp soy beverage, unsweetened, fortified 23 mL
1 cup chestnut purée (sweet) 260 g
1 tbsp rum [optional] 15 mL
plastic wrap
4 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk 60 mL

Before you start

Cans of chestnut purée are available in many supermarkets and in specialty stores. Make sure you buy the vanilla-flavoured, sweetened type; the unsweetened type is used as a savoury main-dish accompaniment.

Method

  1. Heat the chocolate and soy-milk either using a microwave or in the upper part of a bain-marie. When the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat, then add the chestnut purée and the rum. Stir thoroughly to combine, then pour the mixture into a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or up to 2 days).
  2. Put a can of coconut milk in the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 4 hours.
  3. When ready to serve, scoop out the thickened coconut cream, leaving the water in the can. Put the thickened cream into a bowl, then whip it using a whisk for just a few seconds until it begins to thicken.
  4. Portion out the chocolate mousse into transparent cups, spoon the whipped cream over the mousse, then serve.
