White chocolate mousse

Very easy, fast and delicious mousse. White chocolate can be replaced with any other chocolate and orange liquor with any other liquor.

White chocolate mousseserves 2
50 gr white chocolate
1 tsp orange liquor
1 egg, separated
1/2 tbsp sugar
tiny bit of salt
couple of drops of lemon juice
3 tbsp fresh cheese (mascarpone, ricotta, quark)

Melt chocolate and let it cool. Beat the egg white until foamy, add tiny bit of salt and beat until soft peaks. Add lemon juice and beat couple of minutes more. Add sugar and beat until stiff peaks.

Add the egg yolk, orange liquor and cheese to the white chocolate and blend well. Carefully fold in a third of egg whites, then the rest of egg whites. Let it chill in the fridge for an hour. Spoon in the small cups, decorate and serve.
