Gemma Stafford of the YouTube channel Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking gives us the full recipe and video below to make these all on our own this season. I can’t wait to try them out for myself!

Gemma’s Easter Chocolate Mousse Pots with Strawberry Carrots
(Adapted from a Cheryl Style recipe)

8 oz Good quality chocolate (72% cocoa solids)
1 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Cup Warm water
6 Whole Eggs, separated
Cookie dirt
10 Oreo cookies (without the centre)
Strawberry Carrots
8 oz White chocolate chips
1 Tbsp Veg/canola oil
2 Drops s Orange food coloring

1. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and put over simmer water ( ban Marie) to melt
2. Gently stir until melted
3. Remove rom the heat and cool
4. Whisk the eggs whites in a large clean bowl until stiff peeks form
5. Whisk the egg yolks into the chocolate mix until combined
6. Then gently fold in the egg whites into the chocolate mix also. Start by folding in 1 spoonful to loosen the mix, then fold in the rest
7. Spoon the mousse into your prepared, lined pots. Fill up to the top to make for nice presentation

For you cookie ‘dirt’ crumbs
1. In a food processor or with a rolling pin make crumbs with your cookies. Leave some texture in your crumb so it looks like real lumps of dirt

For the Strawberry Carrots
1. Gently melt your white chocolate ( if microwaving do short intervals as it burns easily)
2. Mix in the oil and food coloring. If it is a bit too thick then add a little more oil. It should be runny. If you need to add more food coloring do until you reach your desired orange
3. Pull back the hull so you don’t get chocolate in it and it keeps green.
4. Roll the strawberry and the edge of the bowl to get a good, clean coating of chocolate. Lift out, shake off any excess chocolate and lay to set on parchment paper
5. Roll the strawberry in chocolate as close to the hull as possible so you can’t see any strawberry left
6. I drizzled over lines on my carrots to make them look more authentic. Do this using a little piping bag or drizzle the chocolate off a spoon. You may need to reheat the chocolate to thin it out
7. ( I know that when you try this you will realize it is not as easy as I make it sound. My first batch looks pretty sad. The second one was much better. You will get the hang of it 🙂

The Assembly
1. Generously scatter the cookie ‘dirt’ over the chocolate mousse
2. Stick the strawberry ‘carrot’ in the dirt so it looks like it’s growing out of the pot
3. To really impress your family and friends, pick up some fun Easter bits at a craft store and decorate a plate with chicks, eggs and all things Easter
