Easy Bento Boxes

Today I whipped-up 10 of these Bento Box blocks (finished size 14in). Nine are together forming the centre of a quilt for one of James and Eleanor's carers who's just left their centre. The other is awaiting an extra round or two for a smaller project.
I also whipped-up a quadruple batch of chocolate mousse. But we all had such a big dinner, no-one could face dessert, so we've brought it back home. What a shame! It's the easiest recipe:

Single quantity (serves 4, but I think they're rather scant serves!):
Melt 4oz chocolate good quality dark chocolate and 2T milk together in a large bowl - you'll eventually put everything into this bowl. Separate 2 eggs and beat the whites until stiff. Add the yolks to the chocolate. Rinse and dry the beaters and in another bowl beat about 1/2c cream until thick. Fold the cream into the chocolate, then fold in the beaten egg whites. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or so to set.

Love the Bento Box, but I love the idea of a bathful of mousse more!

The bento box blocks are so pretty - I love all these white background quilts you have been doing lately - very fresh and summery.

The Bento Boxes are gorgeous. What a shame you had to bring the mousse home, seems so cruel to make you eat it all yourself!

OMG. I just made up a single batch for our family to have for dessert tonight. Yummmmm!!
How on earth did you get away with no one eating that delicious dish?
