Nougat mousse, a delicious soft dessert without cooking. For Christmas I love the nougat, but they give me so many that it is impossible to eat them all, then I look for new ways to taste it. In this recipe I chose a chocolate covered  nougat, however any kind of nougat is fine. Serve the nougat mousse in elegant individual cups. This recipe is part  of the Super Christmas Menu 2017.

Some advice before to start:

If you prefer a non-alcoholic dessert you can avoid the rum

If you do not have chocolate nougat you can use 150g nougat and 50g of dark chocolate
