Ingredients: Christmas Tree Brownies - Mousse
Preparation: Christmas Tree Brownies - Mousse
Melt the chocolate and whipping cream together. Set aside to cool. Whip the cream until it is just holding its shape. When the chocolate-cream mix has cooled to 35c fold through one third of the whipped cream. Once mixed add another third and fold in and then add the remaining cream and fold through to create a smooth mousse.
Gently push a dark chocolate pencil on top of the brownie so that it lays in the centre of the tree and forms a trunk. Pipe the mouse in a zig zag line down the brownie. Decorate with dark chocolate blossoms and white chocolate crispearls.
