Brownie Mousse Sundae

I am a chocoholic and this dish definitely satisfies my chocolate cravings.

I had attempted to make mousse before when I was younger but couldn’t get the recipe quite right, but then I realised that I was making life difficult for myself and that to make a mousse you really don’t need too much skills or knowledge.

This is such a tasty pudding that you will be asking for more.

Ingredients

  • 170g dark chocolate
  • 240ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 200g chocolate brownies
  • 100g salted caramel sauce
  • 100ml cream whipped
  • 80g pecan nuts toasted

How to Make

  1. place the chocolate in a bowl, set over a pan of simmering water.
  2. Add 80ml of the cream, stir over a med heat until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temp
  3. In a bowl beat the remaining cream until thickened.

  7. cut brownies into small cubes and divide amongst 2 or 3 glasses.

Me and my daughter had so much fun making this, ending up wearing more of the chocolate than what was in the bowl. It was a wonderful chocolatey mess, and it’s the making it that is the best bit for me, especially when my little one helps x

I would love to see pics of your chocolate mousse and find out how you got on.

To make the sundae a bit more like a traditional sundae you could add a spoon of icecream, this just adds to the yummy dessert something special.

Enjoy! Xx
