Dark Mint Chocolate Mousse

I made this in Canaries when I was out there last. Its a really easy and quick way to make a really impressive dessert. You can make a variation by swapping dark choc mint with dark choc orange and crushed walnuts instead of crushed hazlenuts.

(Serves 2)

Ingredients

1 large packet of very good quality dark mint chocolate.
1 small tub of whipping cream
1 tub of mascarpone cheese
butter
1 packet shelled hazelnuts
Fresh mint leaves to garnish

Method

1. With a rolling pin bang the packet of hazlenuts to break them into little pieces. Open the pack, and then put them in a bowl to one side.

2. Empty the whipping cream into a bowl and whip until it forms soft peaks

3. Heat a generous knob of butter in a saucepan

4. Break the chocolate into little pieces and melt in the saucepan with the butter.

4. When melted take off heat and empty the saucepan into the bowl of whipping cream. Fold the chocolate and whipping cream gently together until well mixed.

5. Add the mascarpone cheese to the mix and the crushed halzelnuts. Again, fold gently until everything is well mixed.

6. Pour mixture into 2 attractive large wine glasses.

7. Garnish top with a couple leave sof fresh mint.

8. Store for 3-4 hours in a fridge to set before serving.
