Author Notes: Take care not to over-mix the chocolate mixture or it will start to get grainy. It’s better to err on the softer side, since the mousse will firm up as it chills. To cut the sugar in the recipe, you can substitute the same amount of water in place of the orange juice.

tablespoons fresh orange juice
tablespoon grated fresh ginger
ounces high quality 70% dark chocolate, finely chopped
large navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
- Combine orange juice and ginger in a small saucepan and bring just to a simmer. Remove from heat and add chocolate, whisking until smooth. Pour the mixture into a metal bowl set in a large bowl filled with ice water. Using a hand-held mixer with a whisk attachment, whip mixture just until chocolate holds a very soft peak. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
- To serve, divide orange sections among serving bowls; top with chocolate mixture.
