Ingredients

8 ounces milk chocolate, plus more for grating

4 tablespoons butter, softened

2 cups heavy cream 

1/4 cup sugar 

4 large egg yolks 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

Gummy worms, for serving 

Directions

  1. Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Set aside to cool a little.
  2. Whip the cream with an electric mixer on high for about a minute. Turn the mixer to low while adding the sugar, then turn back to high and whip to stiff peaks.
  3. Whisk the egg yolks in a pitcher and add the vanilla.
  4. Next, temper the eggs by adding a little of the melted chocolate. Then pour the eggs back into the bowl of melted chocolate and stir to combine. Fold in three-quarters of the whipped cream (refrigerate the remaining whipped cream for serving). Spoon the mousse into serving glasses or bowls and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  5. Serve the mousse with dollops of whipped cream and garnish with grated chocolate and gummy worms.
