Chocolate, mousse-filled towers can be the perfect dessert for a dinner party; they look sophisticated, taste great and can be surprisingly easy to make. The combination of creamy mousse and crispy chocolate is sure to be a winner, and the towers don't even require an oven for baking, though you will need to use a freezer. As with all desserts, make sure you use the very best ingredients to ensure the optimum level of tastiness.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 18 sheets of parchment (3 1/2 by 5 inches)
  • Pastry or piping bag
  • 113gr dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups cream
  • 284gr mascarpone cheese
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 170gr melted white chocolate
  • 170gr melted dark chocolate

  1. 1

    Tape six of your parchment sheets into tube shapes.

  2. 2

    Beat the cream and mascarpone together in a bowl until stiff. Add the cocoa and mix in well.

  3. 3

    Using a double boiler, or a Pyrex bowl in a pan of boiling water, melt the dark chocolate and butter and then fold the melted liquid into your cream and mascarpone mix.

  4. 4

    Place the mixture in a pastry or piping bag and pipe carefully into the six parchment tubes, standing them upright on a plate. Smooth off the mixture at the tops, ensuring it is even.

  5. 5

    Freeze your tubes for several hours until they are firm, then remove the parchment. These are your mousse tubes.

  6. 6

    Take another six sheets of parchment and drizzle with the melted white chocolate, in a loose grid patten. Wrap each parchment around a mouse tube, with the chocolate inward, and refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the parchment and repeat the process but this time using the melted dark chocolate. Your towers are now ready to be served.
