Servings 10 small cups


  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups  (8.8 oz. / 250 grams) dark chocolate

For garnish:

  • 10 red / yellow / orange hard candies
  • Pretzels sticks or rolled wafer cookies


  • In a small pot, place the whipping cream and bring to a light boil on high.
  • Place the dark chocolate in a bowl.
  • Pour the whipping cream on the chocolate and let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
  • Mix the batter until it unifies and is smooth.
  • Cool the batter in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, place the cold batter.
  • Whip to stiff peaks with the whipping attachment.
  • Transfer the mousse to a piping bag.
  • Pipe the mousse in small cups.
  • To create the flames, place a baking paper on a baking pan and set the oven to 160°C / 325°F with the fan.
  • Unwrap the candies and place them in a small sandwich bag, crush them using a rolling pin.
  • Spread the crushed hard candies on the baking pan and bake for 3-6 minutes.
  • Look in the oven and see if the candies are melted, be careful not to burn them! (I recommend keeping an eye on the candies as they melt).
  • Take the baking pan out of the oven and let the melted candies cool.
  • Break the candies into small shapes of flames.
  • Decorate each cup with "flames" and "woods".
  • Enjoy a cup and Lag BaOmer!
