Mint mousse (The day before)
100g cream
mint leaves
2 egg yolks
40g sugar
150g of liquid cream
4g gelatine

Place the gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water.

In a saucepan, heat the 100g of liquid cream with the mint leaves. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and leave to infuse for 15 minutes.

Mix the yolks and sugar in a bowl. Heat the cream a little more and pour over the yolks (remove the mint leaves beforehand). Mix and pour into the pan. While stirring, heat to 82/83°C.

Remove from the heat and add the gelatine.

Mix and set aside.

Whip the cold cream with an electric mixer and add the icing sugar. Pour over the previous mixture and stir gently.

You may add 2-3 drops of mint flavouring if the taste is not strong enough for you.

Pour the mint mousse into the silicone mould. Add the cocoa biscuit soaked with a brush on the inside with a syrup (water, sugar and cocoa) and put it back in the freezer.
