I’m proud to say my chocolate mousse with honeycomb went down a treat!!

To make my honeycomb slice I used Nigella’s amazing method, which was simple and easy for a beginner to use.

After reading the reviews I decided to change the method a bit by using 2 tablespoons of golden syrup and 2 tablespoons of honey. I also reduced the amount of bicarbonate of soda to 1 teaspoon and used the “hard ball” test before adding the bi-carb. I then crushed the honeycomb and let it set in and out of the fridge before smashing and laying on top of the set mousse.

This was an amazing treat and not very hard to make (if I can do it).

I recommend making small servings if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth as this dessert is so rich in cocoa.
