  1. Measure the chocolate into a bowl and sit it over a pan of simmering water. Melt slowly and do not allow the chocolate to become too hot.

How to easily separate egg yolk and egg whites

An easy and quick way to separate egg yolk from egg whites has been shown by British chef Jamie Oliver.

Place a bowl underneath your clean hands, then crack the egg into your hand and let the egg whites slide through into the bowl.

You will be left with the egg yolk in your hand, which you can transfer into the chocolate bowl for Mary Berry’s recipe.

There are other ways to separate the egg yolks from the egg whites but, once you know one way, is there really any need to know another?

Mary Berry’s chocolate mousse pudding can be made the day before you would like to eat it.

Alternatively, the chocolate mousse freezes well, so can be stored for up to a month.

Yet, with it only taking 20 minutes to make, and with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, it should be a doddle to follow.

But, with people most probably wanting more, you might find loved ones want you to make it again, and again.
