Expert Tips

I recommend not whipping the cream too much since it would lose the consistency and become watery easily.

There is nothing more refreshing than citrus, and orange is one of my favorites. I feel so attracted by its color; I love wearing orange because it makes me feel radiant. That is the way I want you to feel when preparing and presenting this orange mousse I’m sharing with you today. It’s a delicious and silky dessert that takes you right to the Garden of Eden with its extraordinary mixture of flavors and texture, drenched in melted chocolate.

You can use white chocolate or the one you prefer to cover the mousse.

You can keep the orange mousse in the fridge for two days putting it in a covered container to protect it from the cold.

Directions

  • 1 Cut the oranges in half horizontally. Using a small sharp knife, cut the inner edges of the orange to remove the fruit without piercing the skin, and use a spoon remove all the fruit leaving the skin clean.
  • 2 Clean the fruit or segments by carefully removing the white skin. Put the fruit in a bowl while preparing the other ingredients.
  • 3 In a deep bowl and using a wire beater, mix the cup of boiling water and the package of orange gelatin for about 2 minutes until it is totally dissolved. Add the ice cubes and stir until they are completely dissolved.
  • 4 Carefully add the whipped topping (previously whipped with an electric beater until thickened for about 3 minutes), the orange liqueur and mix folding in and blend all the ingredients until you get a silky mousse.
  • 5 Place half of the clean fruit in the bottom of the 8 orange peels and reserve the other half to garnish.
  • 6 Using a small ladle, fill the peels with the mixture; put the melted chocolate on top with a small spoon, giving the desired shape. Cool off the peels with the mixture of orange gelatin in the fridge for 30 minutes until it thickens and gets the desired consistency.
  • 7 Garnish with the segments or the remaining fruit on top and enjoy it!
