  • 4 standard Mars Bars, chopped into pieces
  • 50ml milk



    One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a complete food. While cow…

  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 large egg whites
  • chocolate shavings, to decorate


  1. Put the Mars bars, milk and cocoa in a heavy-based saucepan. Cook over a very gentle heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has melted. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool for 15 minutes, whisking frequently with a wire whisk to blend in any pieces of fudge that rise to the surface, to leave a smooth mixture.

  2. Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl until softly peaking. Using a metal spoon, fold a quarter of the whites into the chocolate sauce to lighten it, then fold in the remainder.

  3. Turn the mixture into six small cups, glasses or ramekins and chill in the fridge to set, for at least 2 hours, before serving. Serve topped with chocolate shavings.

My partner tried making these for valentines day, think he went wrong trying to separate the mixture into just 2 portions - way too sickly, was much nicer when we tried it in 6 shot glasses.

We had these last night for Valentine's Day dinner with chocolate dipped strawberries - NOM! Made it with Green and Blacks cocoa powder and it was absolutely divine

Quick to make and delicious. I used the Aldi equivalent of Mars Bars and the mousse was excellent!

I made this for a dinner party and everyone loved it. It's very sweet definitely one for the chocolate lovers. Was also very surprised at the calories, not too bad for something so tasty.

If you substitute drinking chocolate for the cocoa they are a tad less rich.

I had a problem with melting the marsbars and accidentally added too much milk!

Tastes nice! a little runny but thats my fault!

I followed the recipe and this worked perfectly giving a very rich, yummy and well-set mousse. A little went a long way with my friends who are a little longer in the sweet-tooth, I think this recipe is only for devout chocophiles!

I love these mousses they are so delicious, i have made them several times now and once i substituted 2 of the mars bars for 2 small bars of white chocolate and they were gorgeous

A bit sickly for me personally but I often make it when my chocoholic friend joins us for a meal. I doubled it the first time I made it as it didnt look enough but you really dont need to as a small portion is enough - we have very small portion and my friend finishes it off. Easy to make and very chocolately!!

So easy to make and delicious. Wasn't quite as set as I'd have liked but I was using stores own "Mars bars" which were slightly different size so I'm sure this is why. Will def make again and serve with ice cream wafer/biscuit for some crunch. Or friends suggested crushed digestive biscuit layer in the middle....mmm!

My boys are always asking to make this. We make it in a big bowl and add smarties, marshmallows and other sweets to it and a drizzle of toffee sauce on the top. YUM YUM!!
