1 Put the cherries, sweetener and lemon juice in a small, lidded saucepan and place over a medium heat. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes until the cherries have softened. Mix the cornflour with 1 tsp cold water, and stir into the cherries. Simmer uncovered for 1-2 minutes until thickened. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
2 Meanwhile, for the mousse, mix together the yogurt, quark and sweetener in a medium bowl until smooth. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water, stirring occasionally (or microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until melted). Set aside until needed.
3 In a clean, glass bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric hand whisk until thick and frothy. Add the caster sugar and whisk until soft peaks form. Lightly beat the egg yolks with a fork, then stir into the chocolate with 100g of the quark mixture. Using a metal spoon, fold in the egg white mixture.
4 Divide half the chocolate mousse between 6 dessert glasses. Divide over the sponge fingers, cherries and remaining quark mixture. Finish by dividing the remaining mousse over the top. Serve immediately or chill for up to 12 hours.
