Ingredients

  • 250 g strawberries plus a few more to decorate
  • 100 ml water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 120 g mini marshmallows
  • 40 g amaretti biscuits
  • 2 tsp of amaretto liquor
  • 200 ml double cream

Instructions

  • Put the strawberries, water and sugar in a saucepan and boil gently, for about 5 minutes.
  • When the strawberries are soft, mash with a fork or a potato masher. If you don't want strawberry bits/lumps in your mousse, process in a food blender. (I used a masher as I like lumps of strawberries in my mousse)
  • While the strawberry mixture is still hot, pour in the marshmallows and stir until dissolved.
  • Pour into a big bowl to cool.
  • Crush the biscuits, pour in the liquor if using. Divide the crumbs between 4 ramekins.
  • In a separate bowl, whip the cream until it holds its shape, then fold into the cooled strawberry mixture.
  • Pour the mixture over the biscuits and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until set.
  • Before serving, put some halted strawberries on top to decorate.
