indulgent chilli-chocolate mousse

A quick tasty treat, perfect for a last-minute date night or when cooking for friends.


Made using Horlicks Chocolate.

Instant chocolatey malty goodness. Deliciously creamy and comforting.


  • 160g 70% dark chocolate
  • 100g fresh cherries, pitted
  • 150ml whole milk
  • 25g Horlicks Chocolate
  • 65ml double cream
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tbsp kirsch liqueur
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • A pinch of chilli flakes


Whisk the egg in a bowl until thick and glossy and set aside.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.

Heat the milk, double cream and Horlicks Chocolate in a saucepan over a medium heat until it comes to a boil.

Pour the warm cream mixture over the whisked egg and then add the melted chocolate and the chilli flakes, mixing gently until well combined. Once fully mixed, pour into glasses and cool.

Halve the cherries, adding a splash of kirsch and a squeeze of lemon, then leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

When ready to serve, whip the cream into soft peaks. Add a dollop of cream and a spoonful of cherries onto the chocolate mousse and serve!
