sugar. Continue to mix until these are well combined, slightly
paler in colour and you have achieved a thick and creamy
3. Whisk half of the melted chocolate and
half of the double cream into the egg yolk and
sugar mixture. Once combined, add in the rest of the cream and

- To flavour your chocolate mousse, you can either use different
types of chocolate (E.G Orange or mint dark chocolate) or you can
add a small amount of zest to the top - we love orange or
- If you're entertaining guests of legal drinking age, add a
splash of Baileys to the chocolate mousse mix whilst you are adding
the double cream. Please note, this can affect the time it takes
for your mousse to set, so make sure that you allow for this.
- To serve, add fresh fruit and crumbled shortbread biscuits.
