METHOD
 

For the fruity jelly:

  2. Squeeze out the water and place the gelatine leaves in a jug. Pour over ¼ cup of hot water and stir to dissolve. 

  3. Pour the chosen Esprit flavoured drink over the gelatine mixture and stir well before pouring this mixture evenly into tumbler glasses.

  4. Place the tumbler glasses at a slant in the muffin holes of a giant 6-hole muffin tray.

  5. Chill the jelly filled glasses in the fridge for half an hour before pushing the cut fruit pieces through the mixture so that it is suspended in the jelly.

  6. Return the muffin tin to the fridge for a further half an hour, or until the jelly has set.

 

For the white chocolate mousse:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup of the cream over medium heat until just before it reaches boiling point, about 5 minutes.

  2. Pour the warm cream over the chocolate and stir until melted and combined. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.

  3. Using an electric mixer, beat the remaining 1 cup cream until soft peaks form. Once the chocolate mixture is cool, gently fold it into the whipped cream.

 

To assemble:

  1. Spoon the mousse over the set jelly layer and place in the fridge for 45 minutes to chill. 

  2. Garnish with a sprig of mint and respective fruit and ENJOY!
