Decadent Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries and White Chocolate Bubble Wrap Shards Recipe

Makes 8, or if you’re feeling a little more hungry devil 6

Ingredients

For the Mousse 

400g of good quality milk chocolate

4 eggs

1/3 cup of caster sugar

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder

400mL thickened cream

To serve

Strawberries

White chocolate melts (for the bubble wrap shards)

Method

1. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave (about a minute and a half to start off). Stir the chocolate and microwave at 30 second intervals until melted.

2. Cut a piece of bubble wrap (make sure it is clean and has been minimally touched). Pour the white chocolate onto the bubble warp, bubble side up and spread into an even layer (around 2mm thin).

3. Leave the chocolate to set on the bench.

4. Once the chocolate is set, peel of the bubble wrap, break the chocolate up into shards and place in an airtight container. Store in the fridge until serving time.

5. Roughly chop the milk chocolate and place in a microwave proof bowl. Microwave on high for a minute or until melted. Set aside to cool for a bit.

6. Place eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with electric beaters for 5 minutes, or until it’s thick and pale yellow in colour. Fold in the cooled chocolate and cocoa powder until combined.

7. In a separate bowl, whip the cream until it holds soft peaks (if you run a spoon through it, it ill hold shape).

8. Use a spatula to carefully fold the cream into the mixture, trying to keep the mixture as light as possible (don’t over mix it!). 

9. Spoon into 8 serving glasses and chill in the fridge for at least 1 ½ hours (I would recommend making this all the day before).

10. Top with the white chocolate bubble wrap shards and strawberries.

11. Eat and  Bon appétit!
