Nothing says decadence like a light, airy chocolate mousse. The sweet, creamy flavour of the milk chocolate and the deep, rich taste of the dark chocolate give this mousse the best qualities of both.

In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt milk chocolate and dark chocolate, stirring until smooth. Set aside.

In small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup of the cream over medium-high heat just until tiny bubbles form around edge of pan.

In separate heatproof bowl, whisk together egg yolks, sugar and salt; slowly whisk in hot cream. Place bowl over saucepan of gently simmering water; cook, stirring, until instant-read thermometer reads 160 F (71 C) and mixture is thick enough to coat back of spoon, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

Whisk in melted chocolate and vanilla. Place plastic wrap directly on surface; let cool, about 15 minutes. Whip remaining cream; fold one-quarter into chocolate mixture. Fold in remaining whipped cream. Divide among dessert dishes; cover and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.

Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
