I thought it might go nicely paired with cranberries in some way so I bought some fresh ones and got them on the stove. Very simple - I put equal parts cranberries and sugar (about 150 grams), a spoonful of marmalade and a splash of water into a pot and brought it to a boil. Once the cranberries began to split, I turned the gas down and simmered for about 10 minutes. In the meantime, I started on the mousse. Last time I made this I melted the chocolate spread in the microwave, whipped the cream and then folded both together. This time I tried blending both ingredients in a bowl, and so I put a half cup of orange flavoured chocolate spread and a cup of whipping cream and blended! Worked like a charm! When the cranberries were ready, I scooped out a small amount and allowed it to cool before putting a little in the bottom of each glass, then poured the chocolate mousse on top. Allow it to chill for at least four hours or overnight.
I would have garnished this with a slice of chocolate orange but then I would have had to eat it all so I went with fresh. You could use candied orange slices too. I used martini glasses but shot glasses would work well to include this in a little dessert buffet.
The garland in the photo should tell you that I have spent the last couple of days turning my house into Santa's Grotto. And everytime I think I've finished, I find something else to sprinkle a little Christmas magic on ie: tinsel and glitter. Better get cracking on the rest of that baking!
