To prepare

Break the milk chocolate into small chunks and place in a dry bowl. Heat the cream up stirring continuously and pour over the milk chocolate. Set aside for 2 minutes and then stir the mixture to form a smooth ganache. Once the ganache has cooled down, gradually fold in the whipped cream. Refrigerate to set the mousse.

The nutmeg cream

Freshly grate nutmeg over the whipped cream and refrigerate.

The stewed berries

Place the frozen berries (comprising a mix of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc), sugar, thyme and spices in a pan along with half cup of water. Cook covered until the poaching liquor is fragrant, the sugar has melted and the berries are just cooked. Allow to cool.

To Assemble

Place Dark Fantasy Choco Fills Luxuria cookies roughly broken into halves, at the base of the glasses. Transfer the milk chocolate mousse into a piping bag and pipe small peaks over the broken cookies. Place the stewed berries over and around the mousse. Repeat the cookies and mousse to form to layers. Top with a dollop of nutmeg cream. Serve chilled.

Let the mousse take you on a journey to the French countryside with its authentic flavours and enjoy the slight tang of fresh berries as you scoop in a helping of the rich chocolate.
