Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

    20 min

    A delicious chocolate mousse with a surprise of crushed caramelised biscuits at the bottom of each glass. You can find Lotus Caramalised Biscuits at any large supermarket; amaretti biscuits could also work well. I serve this mousse in individual glasses with Cointreau and whipped cream.

    1. Add the butter and chocolate to a microwavable bowl, cook in the microwave for 60 to 90 seconds. Whisk until smooth. Set aside to cool.
    2. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Whisk the yolks with the sugar in a bowl for a minute, then add the creme fraiche.
    3. Add a pinch of salt to another bowl then add the egg whites and whisk until stiff. If you use a mixer, whisk for 2 minutes.
