Delightful crisp and a tender chocolate mousse in one Christmas recipe. Can it get any better than this? This patisserie is pretty easy to make. The presentation requires precision and advanced patisserie skills, the rest is pretty straightforward. Tip of the chef: if you don't have an airbrush gun at your disposal, you can dust the surface with chocolate powder or a mix of cocoa powder and icing sugar.
