Here's a quick and easy idea for dark chocolate.


250g dark chocolate (chopped)

2 eggs (lightly beaten)

200ml pouring cream (lightly whipped)

2 tsp vanilla extract

4 x 150ml dishes

1 punnet blueberries

1 punnet raspberries

1 punnet strawberries (halved)


Melt 250g dark chocolate (chopped) in a bowl over a pot of simmering water (or in the microwave), then remove from heat and stir in 2 eggs (lightly beaten).

Add 200ml pouring cream (lightly whipped) and 2 tsp vanilla extract and stir until smooth.

Divide mixture evenly between 4 x 150ml dishes and refrigerate until firm.

Combine 1 punnet blueberries, 1 punnet raspberries and 1 punnet strawberries (halved) in a medium bowl.

To serve, divide berries between plates, sprinkle with icing sugar and accompany with mousse pots.
