For the mousse, add all the ingredients except the melted chocolate to your blender & blend until smooth. Turn the blender onto low speed then slowly trickle in the melted chocolate.
Once smooth & creamy, transfer the mousse to a bowl & place into the fridge for a few minutes to set.
Meanwhile clean out your blender & add the crumble ingredients & blitz to a crumb.
Serve up the mousse topped with cherry compote or fresh berries of your choice, the chocolate crumble & a sprig of mint.
