This month we were given 3 recipes to choose from..One of them was this easy peasy Eggless mousse and there other options were Chocolate mousse(with Eggs) and a Savoury Tomato Souffle. I chose to make this recipe and also tried my hands at Tomato Souffle (wil post it next).
Now this recipe need only 5 ingredients and the main ingredient that helps this mousse set is Marshmallows. As marshmallows contain gelatin, I had a hard time searching for Halal Marshmallows...but finally found them in an asian store and was soo happy to try this eggless version of mousse which I had bookmarked loooong back from Nigella Lawson's website.
EGGLESS INSTANT CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
Recipe Souce :Nigella Lawson
150 gms Mini marshamallows (you can use regular marshmallows too)
50 gms Butter- softened
250 gms Chocolate( preferably dark Chocolate)-chopped into small pieces
60 ml Hot water
284 ml Cream and
1 tsp Vanilla extract
In a heavy-bottom saucepan, melt the marshmallows,butter,chocolate and water together, stirring every now and then, till evrything melts to form a smooth sauce. Let the Chocolate cool while you are whipping the cream. Meanwhile, whip the cream with vanilla until thick (firm peaks).
Fold the whipped cream into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth mixture. Pour or pipe into individual ramekins or glasses and let it set in the fridge for about 1 hour. Serve with whipped cream and or with strawberry / raspberry. Or just sprinkle some grated white chocolate :)

Amazing..I love souffles...
Assalaam u Alikum,
really nice recipe... I have been buying Halal Marshmallows online for about a year now... they are available at www.halalselectsnacks.com
Gorgeous mousse..wonderful clicks dear.
Mouthwatering!! Can u tell me how halal marshmellows are differnt from the other one.. I guess both hv gelatin..
@ Jyoti- Yup dear Halal marshmallows also contain gelatin, which is non-vegetarian. But Halal simply means that the animal has been killed according to Islamic law. So it is possible for gelatin to be halal but NOT vegetarian. Hope I was able to answer your question .
YUmm, droolworthy mousse..
Mouthwatering chocolate mousse... I am craving it now :-)
