Quick and Easy Chocolate Mousse












Serves 6-8, depending on how greedy you are!




  • A 200g bar of dark chocolate


  • 150ml (1/4 pint) double cream


  • 250g (9oz) mascarpone cheese

Break up the chocolate and place in a basin fitted over a pan of barely simmering water until melted.


Pour in the cream, stir until smooth and finally beat or whisk in the mascarpone cheese until smooth. Pour into small coffee cups or glasses.


Top with a blob of extra whipped cream and some grated chocolate, if you wish.
