    Place biscuits in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Reserve 2 tbs of the biscuit mixture in a bowl.
  2. Step 2

    Use an electric mixer to whisk the cream in a bowl until firm peaks form. Place the chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir for 1 min or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Transfer to a heatproof bowl and stir in the egg yolks. Use an electric mixer to whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. Add the sugar and whisk until firm peaks form. Add half the egg white mixture to the chocolate mixture and gently fold to combine. Add the remaining egg white and gently fold until just combined. Add the whipped cream and gently fold to combine.

    Spoon half the chocolate mixture among short serving glasses. Sprinkle with half the remaining biscuit mixture. Repeat with the remaining chocolate mousse and remaining biscuit mixture. Place in the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
