We all know that this time of year means that whether you like it or not and let’s face it, who is not going to like it, you’re going to overdo it on the chocolate front. The shops are busting at the seams with all sorts of tidbits calling your name as you push your trolly past Easter displays hoping that your willpower will prevent you from buying your 8th box of marshmallow eggs!
I have to admit I’m slightly addicted to them which means that our pantry is currently stocked with a couple of boxes. Yesterday I was looking at the numerous wrappers leftover from one of my marshmallow egg binges and I thought to myself, you know what would be amazing? Chocolate Marshmallow Egg Mousse!
I started by Googling a recipe for marshmallow mousse, a few came up, which meant I was off to a good start. I then decided that I’d make my own version of it by using chocolate marshmallow eggs instead of normal marshmallows and then place my gooey chocolaty concoction inside a bowl made of chocolate! I mean who wouldn’t want a chocolate dessert that comes in a chocolate shaped bowl that you can eat afterwards?!
