Mousse au chocolat a la pomme et cannelle: Chocolate mousse with apple Lovely delicious mousse!!

I love to serve dessert in a glass ^^, it's cute, right? Beside from being cute most of them are easy to prepare too. This time the recipe comes from my new book, hehe,

I start to realize that I collect many of his books ^^, well, he's a Picasso of the pastry world, so collecting his books for me is like collecting his painting.
But I have to admit that there are a lot of recipes which will repeat in his books again and again, -*-, I have only 2 choices, keep on buying his books and don't pay attention to them (because they are some new recipes and ideas too), or stop buying, haha, you know I choose the first answer.
But luckily, for this book, there are a lot of new ideas and recipes, most of all when buying Japanese Baking book, there a lot of how-to photos and a small scale recipe too.
I didn't see this recipe "Mousse au chocolat a la pomme et cannelle" in other books (or I don't remember seeing it, haha), so I choose to make it. The chocolate mousse with apple, sounds good!!!!!!
When eating the mousse, you will get a taste of the sauté apple, that is sweet and refreshing ^^. I love the taste of this mousse, it's not too sweet, so when it's not too sweet, it's mean you will be able to enjoy it more, hehe.This time, I put the mousse in bigger glass than the original recipe, well the original one will serve 10 (very small cup), but I think that's too small. 
I really enjoy this mousse, maybe because I love the apple, they're sweet and soft and if you love apple and chocolate like me, I know that you will be happy with this recipe too.

lovely work as usual Pook. like you, i'm a Pierre Herme Junkie! Hoping that this chocolate-themed book would be translated into Mandarin soon.

i noticed that there's quite a bit of repetition of recipes vis-a-vis ph10, e.g. macaron inca, macaron chuao?
