Step 3Now fold the stiffly whipped cream into the chocolate mixture with a large spoon, then carefully fold in the egg yolks, which have been beaten until foamy.
Step 4Pour the finished mixture into the prepared glasses using a piping bag and leave to cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Step 5For the white chocolate mousse, first mix the powdered gelatine with the cold whipped cream and allow to dissolve and swell.
Step 6Beat the egg yolks until frothy. Then melt the white chocolate and the butter by placing in a bowl in a water bath until fully melted.
Step 7Whip 350 g whipping cream until stiff. Now heat the gelatine to 60 °C. Mix the chocolate, butter, warm gelatine and Baileys with a hand blender and then carefully fold in the whipped cream with a whisk.
Step 8Finally fold in the beaten egg yolks. Remove the dark chocolate mousse from the fridge, and using a piping bag, pipe the white chocolate mousse onto the dark chocolate mousse and refrigerate.
