Tip

For
a truly decadent dessert, use Chocolate Mousse instead of cream on a Pavlova
with fresh or frozen berries as topping.

Try
cutting a bought sponge cake into cubes. Fold through chocolate mousse and
additional whipped cream. Chill and eat!

Pretty straight forward. Great flavour but found the texture a little grainy. 

Sorry but i just tried to make this mousse for christmas day, what a disaster! It took way longer then 10 minutes to make (at least an hour) and when I went to hand fold the melted chocolate into the mixture it went rock hard so I was left with cream and rocks of chocolate! Im new to thermomix and Making this recipe has certainly put me off buying one! Would have been quicker, easier and cleaner to make it on the stove!  Sorry! 

Sorry Bubblegrub, mousse is always a pain. You can alleviate some of the fiddle by melting the chocolate elsewhere...having said that, TM does melt chocolate very well and with no danger of cooking it!

I made this chocolate mousse yesterday and it seemed to quite a bit of mucking around. Mixing stuff then transfering to bowls and not as easy as I had hoped. It was beautifully rich and  I  actually prefered it  served at room temp as it's quite thick.
