Its 4 layers in a ramekin; hazelnut paste & chocolate & popping candy, dark choc mousse, white choc mousse, cherry & vanilla sauce with a cherry on top. It never fails to raise a smile! This dessert has been picked up by the chef for my wedding day in a couple of months for 100 people; it impressed him when he tasted it, I hope it will impress you too. It easily retains its pop for at least 5 days. The oil in the nuts and choc seem to prevent the candy from popping until eaten.
What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?
In the winter (as per recipe given) I make the mousse more like a thick ganache, in the summer I use a lighter mousse. Its indulgent, children, adults and grandparents all love it. And it always brings a huge smile to peoples faces when the popping starts. Email me for more details on the recipe, was hard to squeeze into 500 characters! It can also be adapted for popping ice cream nuggets (lasts 3-6 months frozen)
