I used to make a superb Chocolate mouse, when I was still at home,before I knew about my allergy to eggs!!! So knowing why I was always so ill after eating egg-rich concoctions,I have had to give them up!! VERY VERY SAD!!!! I do admit to having LOVED chocolate mousse,and also chocolate mousse cake.I just am not well advised to continue doing so!!!
A friend of mine makes an awesome vegan chocolate mousse that I really must have a go at making. I am trying to give up dairy and honestly I think the vegan kind is better, with a much richer flavour. I don't have it often though. Chocolate mousse cake sounds nice.
Oh dear, the photo in this question is just too much as I am currently on a diet and I do so love chocolate mousse, and chocolate mouse cake. I must finish my answer and stop looking at this sublime dessert. I must! I must!
I used to make it for my little family dinners, many years ago, but I haven't made it since those days! Like Finy, I would now also make it only with DARK chocolate.Yummy...If I had a choice though I'd rather have tiramisu.
