RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 packet Vanilla Oreo Biscuit
  • 1 cup White chocolate
  • 1 cup Dark chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • Chocolate shavings, for garnishing (optional)
  • Whipped cream, for garnishing (optional)

METHOD:

  • Remove the cream from the oreo biscuit. Take the biscuit and crush it in the food processor along with the melted butter.
  • Take this mixture and heat it in the microwave for 2 – 3 minutes. Pour the mixture into the glasses in which you will finally serve.
  • Take fresh cream in a bowl and heat it on the medium flame. Add powdered sugar and stir until incorporated well. Make sure to constantly stir the cream.
  • Divide the heated cream into two bowls equally. In one bowl add the dark chocolate and mix it well. In the other bowl add the white chocolate and mix well.
  • Add milk in both the bowls and mix until the chocolate is fully incorporated in the cream.
  • Pour the dark chocolate mix over the Oreo layer and allow it to partially set for 15 – 20 minutes in the freezer.
  • Next put the white chocolate layer and allow it to set on the freezer for 1 hour.
  • Take the mousse out and garnish it with chocolate shavings or whipped cream or berries, whatever you please.
  • Put it the the refrigerator and serve it cool.

NOTES:

  • You can  omit the Oreo base and instead use Hide and Seek biscuit. You can even choose to omit any biscuit base.
  • You can add a third layer of milk chocolate to give it a great look.
  • You can add 1/2 tbsp instant coffee powder in the dark chocolate layer to add more flavor. (Coffee and chocolate can never go wrong together.)
  • To keep it simple, make a chocolate mousse using either dark chocolate or using milk chocolate. Don’t forget to adjust the quantities of the different ingredients.
