  • 100 g sugar
  • 50 g butter, melted
  • 1 egg

Instructions

Brownie Bites:

  • In a bowl combine cocoa powder, sugar and self raising flour and stir to blend.
  • In a separate bowl beat together egg and melted butter until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and stir until the mixture becomes smooth.
  • Transfer the batter into a greased pan (use a very small pan as this is half the yield of a normal brownie). Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Let cool until room temperature and then cut into bite sized pieces.

Cheesecake Mousse:

  • Using an electric mixer beat together cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar until creamy.
  • In a large mixing bowl whip the cream until very thick. Let sit in the fridge until preparing the rest of the ingredients.
  • In a heatproof bowl combine ground pistachio, milk and white chocolate. Place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir from time to time until the chocolate is melted and the three ingredients are combined into a thick mixture.
  • With a rubber spatula gently fold the chocolate mixture into the cream cheese. Fold in also the whipped cream, mixing very carefully until uniform.
  • Arrange half of the brownie bites on the bottom of 4 to 6 glasses (depending on their size). Spoon the pistachio mousse over the brownies. Arrange the rest of the brownie bites on top.
  • Cover with cling film and let sit in the fridge for 2-4 hours before serving.
