Nigella Lawson's Instant Chocolate Mousse

I recently discovered Nigella Lawson's quick and easy recipes on youtube. She is famous for being sensual in the kitchen and I think her passion for good food - and not being skimpy with it - is really appealing, especially when she candidly admits to being tempted by all the yummy things in life. After watching this clip on her instant chocolate mousse, I realised I had all the ingredients in my kitchen and attempted to see if it really was that easy. I'm not a chocolate person so this was more of a treat for my boyfriend (who I've been force feeding mousse for a week now!) but the recipe was so simple, fast and a classic crowd pleaser that I'm so glad I can now add it to my dessert repertoire!

"Just glide serenely to the fridge and bring out these dark beauties." - Nigella Lawson
  • 150g mini marshmallows
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 250g dark chocolate chips
  • 4 tbsp hot water
  • 484 mL tub of cream 
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence/extract

  • Melt marshmallows, butter, chocolate chips with the hot water in a pot
  • Whisk cream and vanilla until it forms firm peaks
  • Fold chocolate into the cream
  • Fill glasses with the mousse mixture and refrigerate for 5 minute or until firm
My attempt - yum!
