speculoos mousse

Say hello to your new favorite dessert: speculoos mousse! Last night I had a small dinner with friends and I volunteered to prepare the dessert. I've wanted to make speculoos mousse for quite some time and this seemed like the perfect occasion. I don't know if you are all familiar with speculoos, it's a typical Belgian/Dutch biscuit which you will definitely love if you like cinnamon. I find it really yummy with nutella or crumbled up with ice cream and caramel sauce. Or in this case, in a mousse! The recipe is super easy and it takes less time to make than chocolate mousse!    
 
You'll need (for 6 servings): 
✔ 125g speculoos
✔ 500ml heavy cream
✔ 100g sugar
✔ 2 egg whites

✔ 2 bowls

✔ a mixer

1. First you'll need to crumble up the speculoos cookies into crumbs. 

2. Pour the cream in a bowl and add the crumbs. Let it rest for a while so that the speculoos becomes less crunchy.

3. Put the egg whites and sugar in a second bowl and whip them until they are foamy.

4. Then whip the cream and speculoos until you get a mousse-y texture.

5. Lastly, carefully fold the egg whites into the speculoos and cream mixture. Your mousse is ready! Spoon it into 6 serving glasses and let chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour. You can top it with some extra speculoos crumbles if you like.

Let me know if you give this a go!
Hope you're having a great Friday
