Chocolate Mousse with Honeycomb

Chocolate Mousse with Honeycomb

is a lovely dessert – nice, light and crunchy and also beautiful to look at. I promise that you will impress your friends especially if they are addicted to chocolate like my husband is! I am not a natural baker, but when it comes to desserts, I like to spend lots of time making sure I end up with a good result – I’ve always thought that a great tasting dessert always wins everyone over!

I was inspired my Jamie Oliver – he once made a cake but he decorated with this beautiful gold coloured honeycomb. I knew I liked the idea, and wanted to add it into it mousse that I often like to make. This was a long time ago, and so I thought I will challenge myself and make this beautiful mousse with honeycomb that comes from a place not far away from us called cheddar.

My husband is a great lover of this pudding as he loves both these treats. I am not a chocolate lover so my husband is always willing to finish my dessert as he has a much sweeter tooth than I do.

Lets see how it is made:

Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, add a little water then place a glass bowl on the top and bring to a simmer.
  2. Break the chocolate, then add to the glass bowl. L,et it melt then add the sugar and the butter. Stir until the butter has melted, then whisk in the egg yolk. Whisk well, then remove from the heat.
  3. Now lightly whip the cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, then set aside.
  4. Now in a clean glass bowl, (grease free) whisk the egg white and add a pinch of salt. Whisk until it forms stiff peaks, then fold in the cream and the melted chocolate at the same time.
  5. Don't over fold - as soon as you see the egg whites have disappeared, then stop. (I use the figure eight fold)
  6. Pipe the chocolate mousse into your choice of glasses. Put in the fridge for 2 hrs then crush the honeycomb and then sprinkle on top. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
