lemon moussePreparation time: 20 minutes
Chilling time: approximately 2 hours

Serves 2 

  • 1 packet Lemon Flavored Jelly, in cubes 
  • 30ml (2tbsp) clear honey 
  • 150ml (1pt) double cream 
  • 1x 200g bar dark chocolate, broken into cubes 
  • 225g (½ Ib) fresh strawberrys 
  • 25g (1oz) icing sugar 
  • Dark chocolate curls to decorate


Dissolve the jelly in 150ml (1pt) boiling water, stir in the honey and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Meanwhile whip the cream until stiff. Fold into the jelly mixture. Fill 2 150ml (1pt) heart shaped moulds with the mixture (there will be some left over), cover with cling film and chill in the refrigerator to set. 

Meanwhile melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water. Pour the melted chocolate into an ice cube tray, filling each section only half way to the top. Top up with the remaining jelly mixture and chill in the freezer until firm. Puree the strawberries, reserving 4 for decoration, then sieve to remove the pulp and discard. Whisk the icing sugar into the puree until smooth. Remove the jelly mousses from the refrigerator, dip in hot water for a few seconds and turn out onto 2 dessert plates. 

Surround each mousse with strawberry sauce and decorate with the reserved strawberries and chocolate curls. When required remove the chocolate jelly cubes from the freezer, leave at room temperature for 5 minutes before turning out of tray to serve.
