Prep Time – 30 minutes Serves 4  

INGREDIENTS: 

For the base

  • 125g digestive biscuits
  • 50g melted butter

For the chocolate Mousse

  • 200ml cream
  • 225g dark chocolate
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 25g caster sugar

For the Toppings  

  •  Whipped cream  
  • Guylian Sea Shells or Sea Horses, to decorate  
  • Edible gold dust, to decorate (optional)  
METHOD: 

Chocolate Mousse filling 

  1. Place the double cream in the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment fitted. Whisk until the cream resembles a stiff peak. Cover and chill the cream until you proceed with the remaining steps.  
  2. Place the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in bursts of 30 seconds each, stirring in between until it is smooth. Set it aside to cool a bit.  
  3. In the meantime, place the egg white and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment fitted and whisk until you have a firm peak.  
  4. Fold the egg yolk into the double cream with a silicone spatula, until combined.  
  5. Pour in the melted chocolate and butter to the double cream mixture and fold it through.  
  6. Now add 1/3 of the beaten egg to the mixture and fold until incorporated. Add the remaining beaten egg in 2 steps and fold until well incorporated.  

Parfait Base  

  1.  Place the digestive biscuits in a plastic zipper bag and seal it. Crush them with a rolling pin and transfer the crumbs to a small bowl. Pour over the melted butter and mix through.  

Assembly  

  1. Divide the biscuit filling between 4 jars. Press it with the back of the spoon.  
  2. Spoon or pipe the chocolate mousse filling into the jars.  
  3. Allow it to set for a minimum of 4 hours.  
  4. Just before serving, pipe whipped cream, dust with edible gold dust (if using any) and decorate with Guylian Sea Shells or Guylian Sea Horses for a final finishing touch.
