Easy-Chocolate-Mousse-2
After spending 10 days away being utterly spoiled by my Aunt and having the best time of my life, I’ve found myself struggling just a little bit to return to real life. It feels great to be home and back in my own bed, and not drinking out of a plastic water bottle no one will ever recycle, or walking around sweaty-faced with a drink held to my face, or getting sand in my shoes everywhere I go, or constantly fearing I didn’t apply enough SPF 50 to protect me from the 50C heat.

Hah, now that I’ve got all the not-so-great stuff about my trip out of the way I can focus on all the incredible moments, and there were lots and lots of those. But before all that I should probably sort out the strange sleeping pattern I have adopted after my time away. It’s the beautiful month of Ramadan and I’ll be fasting from approximately 2:30am till 9:20pm. I plan to take it easy for the next couple of weeks before I begin my new career (GAH SO SCARY), go back to dressing like an adult, and have to set my alarm clock the night before.

Speaking of taking it easy, this chocolate mousse is just that: easy and effortless but so gloriously satisfying. I used milk chocolate because it was the only type I had at hand, but feel free to opt for dark and play around with the toppings.

{RECIPE}: EASY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

      • 200g chocolate, roughly chopped
      • 110ml milk
      • 300ml double cream
      • 1-2 tbsp icing sugar
      • Optional: toppings of your choice.

Place the milk in a pan and gently heat until it comes to a boil. Take it off the heat and whisk in the chocolate until melted and well combined. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.

Whisk the double cream with the icing sugar on a medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Gently fold in the chocolate mixture. Pour into serving glasses and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Add toppings of your choice and enjoy.
