Description

This dessert is a beautiful and delicious treat. Crisp and buttery puff pastry is formed into cones which will hold a rich and delicate chocolate mousse. This is a great recipe to make with kids, once the cones are baked give each child a cone and a bowl of mousse for them to fill it with. A selection of fresh fruits and nuts can be set out so they can each customize their own dessert.

Ingredients

  • puff pastry (sheet)
  • 100 grams chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 75 grams butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • salt

Directions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. 2First make the knot molds. Take a large piece of aluminum foil and fold it corner to corner three times, ending with a thick triangle. Roll one side of the triangle towards the other to make a 3D cone shape. Do not flatten.
  3. 3Next, cut the puff pastry into 2-inch strips.
  4. 4Lay the skinny pointed end of the knot mold onto one end of the puff pastry. Roll the puff pastry around the mold, working your way up towards the thick end of the mold like a spiral.
  5. 5Bake about 12 minutes until golden.
  6. 6While the puff pastry is baking, make the chocolate mousse. In a saucepan, melt the chunked chocolate and milk together.
  7. 7Once melted, remove from heat and whisk in the butter until melted.
  8. 8Separately, in a small bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar together with a fork. Whisk into the chocolate.
  9. 9Separately, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt into firm peaks. Carefully fold into the chocolate.
  10. 10When the puff pastry knots have cooled, fill them with the chocolate mousse then refrigerate them until set.
