Serves six (or an indulgent two!)
A simple chocolate mouse is one of the easiest desserts to make and no less impressive because of it. The intense chocolate flavour is often enough, but I like to enhance it with a little orange or brandy. You could serve the mousse on its own, with a little cream or for a true celebration of flavour with this salted caramel sauce. I’ll be forever grateful to the French genius who first put salt in caramel. The ultimate expression of salty and sweet. This sauce works brilliantly with the chocolate mousse but as you can imagine it is just as happy drizzled over vanilla ice cream.
So tasty yet simple to prepare. To give these cookies a festive flair add 3/4 cup chopped mix-ins, such as dried fruit, nuts, or bitter-sweet chocolate along with the flour and cut with Christmas theme cookie cutters!

These make wonderfully chewy and crumbly cookies which are easily adaptable - just use whatever ingredients you might have in the store cupboard. Feel free to swap out the chocolate and raisins with other dried fruit, nuts or seeds.
A delicious chocolatey festive desert.
