Ingredients

  • 8 oz Good quality chocolate (72% cocoa solids)
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 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

  • Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and put over simmer water ( ban Marie) to melt
  • Gently stir until melted
  • Remove rom the heat and cool
  • Whisk the eggs whites in a large clean bowl until stiff peeks form
  • Whisk the egg yolks into the chocolate mix until combined
  • 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
  • Spoon the mousse into your prepared, lined pots. Fill up to the top to make for nice presentation
  • For you cookie 'dirt' crumbs
  • 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
  • For the Strawberry Carrots
  • Gently melt your white chocolate ( if microwaving do short intervals as it burns easily)
  • 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
  • Pull back the hull so you don't get chocolate in it and it keeps green.
  • 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
  • Roll the strawberry in chocolate as close to the hull as possible so you can't see any strawberry left
  • 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
  • ( 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 🙂
  • The Assembly
  • Generously scatter the cookie 'dirt' over the chocolate mousse
  • Stick the strawberry 'carrot' in the dirt so it looks like it's growing out of the pot
  • 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

Hi Gemma, Please post below your video that you can not use water based food coloring. I bought orange powdered food coloring not thinking about the water. Added it and all chocolate seized up. I tried again without the water but the food coloring stays a dirty light skin color. It doesn’t liquify so the coloring isn’t pretty. My kids are older so I will explain but I can’t run to a store to buy food coloring. This is specially bought because of allergies to dyes. Not sure what I am going to do with the rest of this orange… Read more »

Hi Gemma, I’m planning to make this next week for a gathering, but would like to make an eggless version, without the use of raw eggs. Would you recommend substituting eggs with whipped cream instead?

Hi Gemma. I saw a video where you made a quick chocolate mousse with corn flour and I’m pretty sure no eggs, but can’t find this recipe on your website.

Hi! I made the recipe and it’s not fluffy, it’s kind of watery and grainy? Any idea why? Thank you!

Hi, I m planning to make the mousse alone. How many would it serve? Should I add some 1/4 cup sugar to make it sweet or would it be sweet enough for kids? I will be mousse for the first time, hence asking. TIA

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! 🙂

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!
