I love cooking infomercials a little too much. Give me Mick and Mimi and their magic bullet infomercial anyday! We all have a weird quirk right? Haha! I can thank them for this idea. Max and Mimi use cream and chocolate syrup. I have changed it slightly. I use drinking milk powders as well. I recently started as a Your Inspiration At Home consultant and noticed they recommend this as a dessert on the back of their milk powders too!
This is a very quick mousse/flavoured cream. You don’t want too much of this. Trust me on this one!
I eat this as a mousse with fresh fruit generally. Today I used a YIAH Chocolate Raspberry powder that I recently discovered and stirred raspberries through it and on top with a little shaved chocolate.
Use it in trifles, to top pavlova, in chocolate cases, alongside brownies, in brandy snaps, layered in cake with fresh strawberries to name a few.
You can vary the flavours with the milk powders or syrups you use. A caramel or strawberry syrup would work well. A white chocolate or mocha powder makes a great mousse. A banana flavoured powder would work really well for banoffie pie or a banana trifle. A dark chocolate mousse along with a mudcake would be delicious. The list really is endless.
