Egg free mousse

Chris has found and adapted this recipe, but as he never remembers to blog anything I thought I might as well do it. It’s absolutely delicious and very easy, although hugely unhealthy and rammed with sugar. I actually used speculoos spread in place of the chocolate to make a speculoos mousse as per a suggestion on facebook. It was nice but probably too sickly, even for us! Will try an actual speculoos mousse recipe next time, but I can’t eat raw egg at the moment so had to improvise. However, try this with any type of chocolate (white is nice too but as the marshmallows come in pink and white bags the colour is a bit confusing!) it’s lovely mousse

75g mini marshmallows
30ml hot water
25g butter
100g dark chocolate
50g milk chocolate
150ml double cream
Splash vanilla

Melt marshmallows, water, butter and chocolate in a pan
Whisk cream and vanilla (ideally with electric whisk to save your arm)
Fold cream in. I panicked at this stage as the cream melted a bit from the heat, although I’d left it to cool a minute first. However, it was no problem that it’d melted a bit, it set perfectly.

I have a feeling the original recipe he copied was by nigella. This is halved so makes 2 ramekins full.
