A dry fruit based dessert, ready in minutes, the Apricot Mousse has a pleasant colour, taunting aroma, soothing taste and rich texture, all of which make it a star on the dinner table! The mellow flavour of apricot is well-balanced by the giddy sweetness of condensed milk, which in turn is sobered by the nutty texture and slight saltiness of crushed digestive biscuits. Altogether, these ingredients result in an aesthetically indulgent mouth-feel that will please one and all.
