Chocolate Mousse Pots with Strawberry Carrots
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 8 oz Good quality chocolate (72% cocoa solids)
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • ½ Cup Warm water
  • 6 Whole Eggs, separated
  • Cookie dirt
  • 10 Oreo cookies (without the centre)
  • Strawberry Carrots
  • 8 oz White chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp Veg/canola oil
  • 2 Drops s Orange food coloring
Instructions
  1. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and put over simmer water ( ban Marie) to melt
  2. Gently stir until melted
  3. Remove rom the heat and cool
  4. Whisk the eggs whites in a large clean bowl until stiff peeks form
  5. Whisk the egg yolks into the chocolate mix until combined
  6. Then gently fold in the egg whites into the chocolate mix also. Start by folding in 1 spoonful to loosen the mix, then fold in the rest
  7. Spoon the mousse into your prepared, lined pots. Fill up to the top to make for nice presentation
  8. For you cookie 'dirt' crumbs
  9. In a food processor or with a rolling pin make crumbs with your cookies. Leave some texture in your crumb so it looks like real lumps of dirt
  10. For the Strawberry Carrots
  11. Gently melt your white chocolate ( if microwaving do short intervals as it burns easily)
  12. Mix in the oil and food coloring. If it is a bit too thick then add a little more oil. It should be runny. If you need to add more food coloring do until you reach your desired orange
  13. Pull back the hull so you don't get chocolate in it and it keeps green.
  14. Roll the strawberry and the edge of the bowl to get a good, clean coating of chocolate. Lift out, shake off any excess chocolate and lay to set on parchment paper
  15. Roll the strawberry in chocolate as close to the hull as possible so you can't see any strawberry left
  16. I drizzled over lines on my carrots to make them look more authentic. Do this using a little piping bag or drizzle the chocolate off a spoon. You may need to reheat the chocolate to thin it out
  17. ( I know that when you try this you will realize it is not as easy as I make it sound. My first batch looks pretty sad. The second one was much better. You will get the hang of it 🙂
  18. The Assembly
  19. Generously scatter the cookie 'dirt' over the chocolate mousse
  20. Stick the strawberry 'carrot' in the dirt so it looks like it's growing out of the pot
  21. To really impress your family and friends, pick up some fun Easter bits at a craft store and decorate a plate with chicks, eggs and all things Easter

    I am so sorry to be a bother, but I just wanted to confirm the recipe has no sugar or heavy cream in it?

    Thank you! 🙂

      Hi Rachael,
      No, the recipe is as it says. This is a light mousse, an old fashioned one if you will!
      Gemma 🙂

    How far in advance can these be made?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 14, 2017 at 3:48 am

      Hi Rachael,
      A couple of days, keep them covered and refrigerated,
      Gemma 🙂

  3. Rachael Schumer on April 10, 2017 at 10:55 am

    Hello! Can you tell me how many this makes? I am wondering how many pots to purchase..

    • Gemma Stafford on April 11, 2017 at 2:55 am

      Hi Rachael,
      This will make 6 – 8 pots. You can also make this in bowls you may already have in your home.
      Gemma 🙂

        Hi! I am wondering how far in advance I can make these? I would like to have them for Easter Sunday… thank you!

        • Gemma Stafford on April 14, 2017 at 3:57 am

          Rachael, I think I responded to this, but just in case, a couple of days, so Friday, for sunday, and they will hold a bit longer if you need them to, but at their best two days, covered and refrigerated,
          Gemma 🙂

    The lawsuit states that the violent raid, which included officers in full tactical attire and military-grade weapons,
    stemmed solely from an alleged housing code violation. Then he gets conditioned to the
    meetings never happening and becomes a no show.
    With that thought in mind, I suggest a CPA, Tax Attorney or a qualified tax resolution official.

    Matt Drudge was right when he tweeted, “Have an exit
    plan. You can come out with some credits and software
    from hacking databases though. The usual organized chaos ensues as students pour from their classrooms into the cafeteria.

    What a brilliant idea! I’ve been looking for a favorite chocolate mousse recipe I managed to lose years ago. It used Grand Manier which really highlighted the chocolate flavor but that’s all I remember. If I add liqueur to this how much would you suggest? I assume I add it to the cooled chocolate? Can I use chocolate with 85% cocoa instead of 72% and do I have to make any other adjustments if so? Thanks so much!

    • Gemma Stafford on April 8, 2016 at 3:04 pm

      Hi Bella,
      First of all thank you for your kind comments, I appreciate your support.
      Then, I would not suggest 85% cocoa content, the 70% + melts better as it has a higher cocoa butter content, and is less likely to burn or split when heated. it will also take the Grand Marnier better, add about 1/2 glass to the chocolate, gradually mixing it through, a little goes a long way. you can also add some orange zest to enhance the flavor. It sounds delicious,
      Gemma 🙂

    Wonderful! May I ask what can be a substitute for whipping cream? Many thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on March 26, 2016 at 5:43 am

      Hi Bella,
      There are some things for which there are no substitutes, and this is one of them! I do know that dairy cream is not available everywhere, and some recipes will not be the same without this ingredient, sorry!
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma, I really love your videos especially those no knead recipes. 🙂 Can i use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead? thanks for the reply.. 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on January 27, 2016 at 12:51 pm

      Sure, you can use whichever chocolate you prefer. Thanks so much for watching 🙂

    These are actually impressive ideas in about blogging.
    You have touched some pleasant factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.
