12.5g Dark Chocolate (chips or any easy melting kind)

10 Ready-made shells
1.) Pour the Milk, Dark chocolate chips and Cocoa into a small saucepan - Heat, while stirring continuously, till the chocolate is melted.
2.) Whisk the Egg yellow in a small bowl - From the chocolate mixture, add spoon by spoon to the egg, ensuring the egg heats slowly - Stir the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture in the saucepan, stirring all the time (about 2 minutes), until the mixture has thickened. Do not boil the mixture. Remove from heat.
3.) Sprinkle the Gelatin over the cold water, wait till softened, 1 - 2 minutes. Add the Gelatin to the Milk mixture, stir until Gelatin is dissolved. Now add the Vanilla and mix.
4.) Fill the shells with a teaspoon - Whisk the Egg white until stiff, fold he Whipped cream in and decorate. Place in the fridge till set (5 - 10 minutes) or till ready to serve
(This mousse sets fairly quickly as it is only a small amount per shell, therefore you need only wait a minute or two before decorating with the Whipped cream)
