Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Creamy chocolate mousse

Mmmmm….. chocolate mousse! Thick, rich, sweet and creamy chocolate.

Does it get any better? Probably not.

As with any of our chocolate recipes, the better quality chocolate you use, the better the final product will be.

Did You Know?…

The recipe calls for semi-sweet chocolate but you can use either semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate. Obviously the bittersweet will be less sweet, even with the cup of sugar added. Suite your own taste.

This recipe for mousse (not chocolate “moose”) sounds exotic but you can see from the directions that it is actually a fairly quick and easy dessert recipe.

It is a wonderful recipe to serve company or for a romantic dinner, but easy enough to make any time.
