Chilling Time

I’ve paired the aromatic cordial with the sweetness of the white chocolate and strawberries to create a smooth light mousse. A delicious way to celebrate Spring.

Ingredients

  • 200g Divine White Chocolate with Strawberries
  • 300ml double cream
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 fine leaf gelatine leaves
  • 2 tbsp elderflower cordial
  • 5g freeze-dried strawberries
  • Fresh strawberries cut into fans

Method

1

Soak the gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water for 4 to 5 minutes.

2

Chop the chocolate into small pieces using a serrated knife. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over low heat stirring occasionally.

3

Whip the cream into soft peaks adding the cordial slowly to ensure the cream doesn’t split.

4

Remove the gelatine from the bowl and squeeze out any excess water. Place in a saucepan over gentle heat until melted, this should only take a few seconds. Add to the cream mixture.

5

Add the melted chocolate to the cream.

6

Beat the egg whites into soft peaks and carefully fold into the cream mixture.

7

Spoon some of the mousse into the glasses. Arrange the freeze dried strawberries around the outside of the glass, top with a bit more of the mousse. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours.

8

Before serving, top each mousse with a strawberry fan.
