Easter "Must-Have" Chocolate Mousse

Easter "Must-Have" Chocolate Mousse

This gorgeous recipe was sourced from one of my favourite restaurants in St Tropez – where they serve it in giant bowls that you can serve yourself and scatter strawberries or raspberries on top! Totally delicious, not too rich and universally loved! Bon Appetit!

Milk Chocolate 100g

Unsalted butter 75g

Free – range eggs x 4

To Make - 

1.     Melt the chocolate and the butter in a bowl over a pan of hot water

2.     Stir in the vanilla extract and let the melted butter and chocolate cool
