Terribly Clever Chocolate Mousse Starter from M&S

On my birthday it was our plan to have a Roast Dinner as the Birthday celebrant get to choose what food the entire family eats. Daddy, Top Ender and Baby Boy wanted to prepare a treat for me though as a surprise and so whilst I was in the lingerie department of M&S spending my birthday money they went to the Marks and Spencer Food Hall and had a look at what was on offer. When they found a Chocolate Mousse Starter they knew they had found the right treat for us to share.

The idea is really simple, you get some double cream (284ml of the stuff) and whip it before adding in the chocolate mousse starter. After it is mixed it looks a bit like this...

And then in the pots, it looks like this...

Daddy put them in the fridge for twenty minutes and then we ate them. I have to say that it was one of the nicest puddings I have ever had and a bargain as each mousse works out at about 55p each when you include the cream. Suitable for those of us who have to be gluten free, those of us who start diets tomorrow and those of us who like the finer things in life!
