Nigella Lawson - Easy Chocolate Mousse 071116
Easy Chocolate Mousse by Nigella Lawson from Nigella Express
INGREDIENTS * 150grams mini marshmallows * 50grams soft butter * 250grams best-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces * 60ml hot water from a recently boiled kettle * 250ml heavy cream * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Put the marshmallows, butter, chocolate, and water in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Put the saucepan on the stove over fairly gentle heat to melt, stirring every now and again. Remove from heat to cool.
2. Meanwhile, whip the cream with the vanilla until thick and then fold into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth, cohesive mixture. Pour/scrape into 4 glasses or small dishes, about ¾ cup each in capacity, or 6 smaller (½ cup) ones, and chill until you want to eat. The sooner the better! And do not refrigerate if you can help it.
