No reviews

Transform the rich, bitter flavors of smoked chocolate into a sweet mousse with grilled berries.

  • Total Time: 45
  • Yield: 8 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 oz dark chocolate bar, 60% recommended
  • 8 oz berries, (blackberries, blueberries, mulberries, etc.)
  • 1 tbsp caster (superfine) sugar
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • mint for garnish

Instructions

  1. Smoke the chocolate. Place the chocolate on a mesh mat, or a baking sheet inside your smoker. Prepare your grill for cold smoking using a smoking tube, or wood chips. Smoke the chocolate for 20-30 minutes for the desired flavor. Place in a sealed bag until needed.
  2. Place the ricotta in the food processor and blend on high for 2 minutes until smooth. Move on to melting the chocolate.
  3. Boil a small pan with water, and place a glass bowl over the top to create a double-boiler. Chop up the chocolate into smaller pieces which allows them to melt simply. Place the chocolate in the bowl and stir frequently with a spatula until it melts.
  4. Add the sugar and salt to the ricotta and turn on the food processor. Stream the chocolate all in while it’s blending. You may need to stop and scrape the sides. You can either serve immediately or refrigerate for later.
  5. Grill the berries. Take the berries and roll/toss them in the caster sugar. You can use a spice grinder to blitz regular sugar superfine if you do not have caster sugar. Place them in a metal strainer directly over hot coals for 1-2 minutes, just until they change color and look like they will burst.
  6. Serve the berries right away with mousse, berry puree (blending berries with a touch of water and sugar), and some mint.

Notes

The entire dish can be prepared ahead of time, even the berries.
