After seeing the above photo you all are now thinking that today I am going to write about my garden flower pots,but if I say that I am going to share the recipe of Chocolate Flower Tub Filled with Chocolate Mousse and Crushed Oreo Biscuit
,then..yes this is not regular flower tubs,they are made with chocolate.Though they look like your everyday garden pots, right? But take a closer look… Nope, that’s not dirt you see, it’s chocolate ‘soil’..crushed Oreo biscuit mixed with butter.To make this recipe,I was inspired by Master chef Sanjeev Kapoor's Khana Khazana site,though I made some variations.
My daughter summer vacation has been started almost one month back.This time we did not go anywhere, so just to spent her time made these adorable bite size flower pots. A moulded chocolate pot filled with Egg less Chocolate Mousse and topped with Crushed Oreo Biscuit mixed with butter.
Though I am a non vegetarian,but I do not like chocolate mousse with eggs. the thought of smell of raw eggs in a regular mousse, just makes me not to have it. So here I made Egg less chocolate Mousse.
