Salt flakes + chocolate = :¦:-•:*’”"*:•.- SPECTACULAR -.•:*’”"*:•.-:¦:

And that is all I have to say about that.

You don’t need a lot salt to accomplish the goal, which is to make the chocolate more chocolate-y. The rosemary is to give a deeper complexity to the flavour. I’m not going to lie, the taste of the avocado isn’t completely obliterated – you do get a very slight aftertaste, but it’s barely noticeable.

CHOCOLATE MOUSSE WITH ROSEMARY & SEA SALT

1 HASS AVOCADO, PEELED & DICED
3/4 CUP MAPLE SYRUP OR DARK AGAVE NECTAR
3/4 CUP DUTCH PROCESS COCOA OR UNSWEETENED COCOA POWDER
1 TEASPOON FRESH ROSEMARY, FINELY CHOPPED
1/2 VANILLA BEAN, SEEDS SCRAPED OUT

FOR THE TOP

1/2 TEASPOON FLAKED SEA SALT
ROSEMARY SPRIGS
ROSEMARY FLOWERS

Put all the mousse ingredients into a food processor and blend until very smooth. Spoon into small containers (I made four) and top with a sprinkle of salt flakes, fresh rosemary sprigs and flowers.

    I’m thinking rolling into balls and coating with cocoa powder and serving as a truffle. (Blend the salt with the other ingredients)

      Yesssss! I love this idea, Anne :)
      The mixture is quite soft with the avocado so might need some almonds or cashews thrown in (or some coconut oil even?) to give it a bit more stability to be able to roll into balls similar to the truffles in this post.
