On Saturday night, I decided to try a variation on my chocolate mousse. I was originally hoping to buy some chocolate pudding to use, but Tesco Ireland doesn’t ever seem to stock any.
So, I put some chocolate cake/sponge in the bottom of each individual serving dish. Then I drained a tin of black cherries in syrup, and poured the syrup over the sponge. Then I put some of the cherries in each of the bowls, on top of the cake. Next, I made a chocolate mousse using a mixture of dark and milk chocolate, butter and egg yolks, and folded in the whipped egg whites. A few dollops of the mousse went into each bowl, topped with a dollop of whipped cream, a cherry and some dark chocolate shavings. Voila!
