Around halfway through whipping, start to slowly add the sugar and xanthan gum. Once all added whisk for a further 10 minutes on full speed. Fold the meringue, gently into the chocolate mixture and place immediately into desired moulds/tray.

Freeze solid if in silicon mould to ease removal from the mould.

Blackberry gel

Mix all ingredients together with hand blender and blend until a smooth consistency is reached, leave for 30 minutes to hydrate and blend again.

Garnish and assembly

Once you have made your mousse mixture and placed into your silicone moulds, lightly grind some cocoa nibs and add some tempered chocolate and place on the bottom of your mousse. This will enable you to move them much easier with a base. Freeze silicone mould solid.
