Starting with the mousse, begin by melting 200g of dark chocolate and 20g of butter over low heat until smooth.
Next, add six egg yolks and stir until combined. In a separate bowl, beat six egg with an electric mixer until stiff.
Then slowly add the egg whites to the chocolate and stir through. Once combined the mixture can be poured into cups and left in the fridge to set.
To make the ganache add two cups of cream to a mixing bowl which needs to be heated in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Then add 200g of melted milk chocolate and whisk until smooth and creamy. Spoon this over the mousse and smooth across.
