Marshmallow Chocolate Mousse

I had my lot over for lunch today and wanted to make a couple of desserts.

I knocked up Billy's favourite, a banoffee pie. Then I was a little stumped at what to do for the 2nd choice.

I wanted something the grandchildren would like but would be easy to do. So I decided on an easy chocolate mousse. But this is no ordinary chocolate mousse, this is one made from marshmallows.

Perfect for little people, pregnant ladies or the elderly as it doesn't contain any raw eggs. I had loads of marshmallows over from Harley's recent party and a gorgeous company sent me the most wonderful tubs of chocolate, so it seemed like a given.

Everyone loved it and in-fact they chose this over the banoffee. But Billy did take home a huge wedge of the pie and just called to say it was unreal (I think that means he liked it).
100g marshmallow (pink or white)
80g good dark chocolate (honestly don't use milk it will be toooooo sweet)
50g butter (salted, you don't hear me say that often)
300ml double cream 
1 tbsp of cocoa mixed with 120ml of boiling water (or for adults use 120ml fresh coffee) 
1 flake 

In a pan over a medium add the marshmallows, chocolate, butter cocoa, water or coffee, stir until everything is melted and combined.

Put to one side to cool completely.

Whisk the cream until you have medium peaks and gently fold through the chocolate, spoon into 4-5 ramekins or tea-cups.

Bash the flake into small pieces and sprinkle over the mousses, chill for an hour before serving. 

*For some added interest you could bash up some matchmakers instead of the flake. Orange, coffee or the mint ones would work really well.
