Chocolate Mouse Inside Chocolate Cups

I love this recipe. Admittedly it was not mine to start with, I borrowed it from one of my favourite ladies – Dulce Delight. I have just made a nopte as to where to use something soy for those skipping dairy.

You need

Chocolate Mouse Inside Chocolate Cups


for chocolate cup –
170g bittersweet chocolate (I used 60% cacao)
for mousse –
130g bittersweet chocolate
2 large egg yolks
2 tbsp confectionary sugar
1 1/2 tbsp water
1 cup heavy cream – the soy variety
1/4 cup ground toasted hazelnuts
2 tbsp Amarula liquor or Hazelnut liquor (I used rum but it didn’t taste as good)
optional: chopped toasted hazelnuts on top or cacao powder

plus: mini cupcake paper liners

If you don’t have a pastry bag just spoon the mousse inside the cups. If you don’t feel like making the cups (shame on you=) spoon your mousse inside a nice glass you have and it will also look fantastic.
