Instant Chocolate Mousse

I got the recipe from another place. It's Nigella Lawson's recipe. But it is so nice. Notice the white stuff? It's the whip cream, I put in extra for the taste. Lovely! This recipe doesn't require any eggs or sugar. Cheating, but taste just as lovely as other chocolate mousse.

150 gram mini marshmallows
50 gram soft butter
250 gram chopped dark chocolate
60 ml hot water from recently boiled kettle
284ml double cream ( since I want creamier mousse, I used 2 boxes of 200ml heavy whip cream)
Vanilla essence as much as you like

1. Put marshmallows, butter, chocolate and hot water in a heavy based saucepan. Melt the contents, then cool them for a while.

2. Whip the cream with vanilla until thick. Mix into cooled chocolate mix.

3. Pour into ramekins / glasses / small mugs, refrigerate until ready.

You can dust with cocoa powder before serving. Enjoy!!

  1. By the way, don't let the chocolate cool too much. Slightly warm. I forgot to tell about it. If cool further, it'll be too sticky and can't be mixed with the cream.
