This is a simple recipe for black sesame mousse with a twist of oreo cookies! It is reminiscent of cookies and cream ice cream with comforting pockets of softened Oreo cookies and an extra punch of creamy and roasted black sesame flavour. This mousse has a full bodied flavour of black sesame and is perfectly creamy with a good amount of airy-ness a lighter mouth feel.

This recipe is suitable in a glass as a standalone dessert or also as a component in a plated dessert or entremet. The mixture before it is set is still quite runny which allows for easier moulding.
