Masterchef Chocolate Crunch Dessert

A little while ago I won a cookery book in a Rafflecopter competition - the Masterchef Kitchen Bible. This is the first recipe I've made from it - it's actually called Rice Krispie Cake with Chocolate Mousse, Cherry Sorbet and Cherries in Kirsch - but I left out the cherries because I don't like them and didn't make the sorbet either as I wanted this to be a fairly quick and easy dessert. So I'm calling it Chocolate Crunch Dessert!

Serves 2
You need:
For the base:
50g dark chocolate
30g Rice Krispies
1 tbsp golden syrup
100g condensed milk
For the mousse:
75g dark chocolate
2 eggs
100ml double cream

Melt the chocolate and stir in the Rice Krispies. This takes me back a bit!

Stir in the syrup and condensed milk.

Spoon into the base of individual serving dishes and leave aside to set - but don't put in the fridge or they will set too hard.

So far it's just like a Rice Krispie cake...

Separate the eggs. Melt the chocolate for the mousse, and stir in the egg yolks.

Whip the cream - doesn't this look tempting?

Then beat the egg whites until stiff (in a separate bowl with a clean beater)

Gently fold the cream then the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to make a lovely mousse

Spoon the mousse into the serving glasses on top of the Rice Krispie mixture.

This was a lovely dessert; you could jazz it up with the cherry sorbet and kirsch or even add a shot of liqueur (I would recommend Chambord Black Raspberry liqueur) to the mousse for a more 'adult' dessert. But my boyfriend and I enjoyed this just as it is!

I'm sending this to Tea Time Treats, hosted by Karen of Lavender and Lovage and Kate of What Kate Baked, as the challenge this month is to make a chilled dessert.


  1. Thank you so much for entering this delectable dessert into TTT!

    1. I tried to make something last night and it went a bit wrong - as I didn't have all the ingredients so decided to improvise, which didn't work! So I thought I would send you an older post as I did want to enter this month.
