    In terms of texture I was unsure this was going to be sufficiently light, unsure whether I'd whipped the cream and condensed milk enough. However, the texture was spot on. What I didn't like so much was the fact that, for my taste, the chocolate wasn't intense enough and the predominent flavour was the oiliness coming from the cream and condensed milk. I would have liked a higher ratio of chocolate. Maybe I'll experiment with making this again with more chocolate and less condensed milk, but I'm not sure.

    Easy and quick to make. I left out the orange liqueur as serving to my children also. The mouse was not the conventional recipe with egg yolks mixed in with the melted chocolate and folding in egg whites- no, this was eggless. Set quickly and very firm in the fridge after just 30 mins. Quite dense and rich also. Makes 6 portions and all of our family members struggled to eat it. Half the portion would suffice. Very tasty however!
