Ingredients :

Stewed pears:

4 juicy pears

4 tsp liquid honey

1 star anise

1 cinnamon stick

3 gelatin sheets

Chocolate mousse:

1 and ¾ cups (200 g) dark chocolate

½ cup + 1 tbsp (100 ml) liquid cream

3 eggs (3 egg yolks – 3 egg whites)

1/3 cup (40 g) confectioner’s sugar

Cook stewed pears: 

Soak the gelatin sheets into a bowl filled with a little bit of cold water and set aside

Peel and core the pears, cut into 0.2 inches (½ cm) thick slices, then dice into small cubes

Place the diced pears and spices in a pan, simmer over low heat for about 10 to 15 minutes, pears must be soft but still hold

Pour a layer of about 1 to 2 cm (about 0.8 inches) high of stewed pears into your glasses.

Squeeze the gelatin sheets and melt them in a little bit of hot water and a spoonful of juice of stewed pears

Into a flat bottomed dish of corresponding size, lay a flat layer of about 1/3 of stewed pears, pour gelatin liquid on top and let set about one hour in your fridge, when gelatin will be set, we will cut forms with molds to decorate the tops of each chocolate mousse

Reserve the remaining stewed pears, we will stir them into the chocolate mousse

Prepare the chocolate mousse:

Melt the dark chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over simmering water

Let cool and pour into a bowl

Add 3 egg yolks, one by one, whisking well after each addition

Whisk the 3 egg whites until soft peaks, add the confectioner sugar spoon by spoon while continuing whisking until stiff peaks form, fold gently into chocolate mixture

Gently stir in the reserved diced pears (no juice)

Pour chocolate mousse into your glasses and let set for a few hours in your fridge

Before serving, cut a few shapes into the jellied pears to decorate the individual chocolate mousse

Assembly:

Put one layer of stewed pears of about 1 inch (2 cm) at the bottom of glasses

Fill the rest of the glasses with chocolate mousse mixed with stewed pears

On top, lay a decor of stewed pears fixed in gelatine

Enjoy!
