At home we have taken advantage of our favorite Christmas nougat to prepare this dessert that is not only quick and easy, but also delicious.

We can play with the presentation and use individual containers, so that each diner has their portion in mini format, or place the mousse in a large bowl and distribute on the table.

Preparation of the base of the nougat mousse

  1. We start by hydrating the gelatin leaves in a bowl with cold water for about 10 minutes.
  2. Heat the milk in a saucepan and, before it boils, remove from the heat and add the drained gelatin leaves.
  3. We stir to incorporate (they will not take long because, when it comes into contact with the heat, it melts immediately).
  4. Next we add the Jijona nougat previously chopped and crush with an arm mixer until obtaining a homogeneous cream.
  5. With the help of metal rods we mount the egg whites until stiff and reserve in the fridge.

Assemble the cream and join the nougat

  1. We also mount the cream , which must be very cold or it will not mount.
  2. Add a tablespoon of the nougat cream to the cream and stir gently, with enveloping movements. We repeat the operation.
  3. Then we add the previous mixture to the container with the rest of the whipped cream and stir gently until obtaining a homogeneous mixture.

Final preparation and assembly of the nougat mousse

  1. We beat the whites with electric rods and, when they begin to foam, add the sugar little by little, in the form of rain, without stopping beating.
  2. We stop beating when they have reached the snow point.
  3. We incorporate the whipped egg whites into the container with the nougat and cream mixture, stir gently so that the air from the shake is not lost and, when we obtain a homogeneous mixture, we divide it into four glasses or cups.
  4. We take the glasses to the fridge and let them take body for an hour before consuming.

We decorate to taste, either with some nougat dice of jijona, fruit, chopped almond or whatever we like best. They can also be served as is.
