Looking for a three chocolate mousse
Asked on 10 Nov 2020 by Catherine123
Please can you help.
Many years ago I used to make a delia dessert for my girls. It was a mousse ish dish. Three tiers of chocolate mousse . dark chocolate first then milk chocolate then white chocolate. Think it was melted chocolate and eggs and sugar but I may be wrong. My girls are now 35 + and still mention it. Thought I would do it as a surprise this Xmas but I can’t find it in any of my delia books not even the complete works. I must have missed it.
Can you help please.
As far as I know that is not a Delia recipe.
I will check with Delia and let you know if I’m wrong.
Hi thank you
Def was it was in one of her books my sister had
Thanks for askin her fingers crossed
Delia says that she doesn’t have a recipe for a three-chocolate mousse in any of her books.
This recipe doesn’t fit the brief but the closest thing I can think of is this….
Iced Chocolate Creams
Many thanks for your reply and the time u have dedicated to my search.
It was made in a loaf tin but looked like that. It was light and soft and you let each layer set. I always had trouble with the white choc layer.
Really confident it was a delia book. We used to alternate who bought her latest. Thus dessert became a favourite, my sister came across with book in hand we made a day of it and made two. I used to joke about the fact that if we ever fell out I’d loose the recipe.
We only stopped doing it when the girls moved out. I’m afraid the books long gone but If I could find it I’d buy it again.
Hey ho nice thought but thank you so very much for your efforts.
If I ever find it I will let you know. Think a trip to the library after lockdown
Delia was sure that it wasn’t one of hers. I have all the books - do you remember a photo? I wonder if it was a recipe from one of the contributors when Delia and her husband had the Sainsbury’s Magazine?
I don’t have a photo but in the book there was one
I don’t have anything unfortunately.
Wish I had asked her for it when she moved, I’m afraid she down sized and went into online recipes
I have asked her and she too says it was a delia recipe from her book
She seems to think it was on one of her tv programs too but I don’t recall that at all.
Don’t worry it was not meant to be
Thank you to you both for trying though
