Chocolate Mousse

One of my hubby’s most favorite desserts has always been chocolate mousse. Anytime we go to a restaurant and they have it on their menu, he orders it! Me, I had never had it until him, but one bite into it, I knew, it was on my top dessert list!

I decided to try making it on my own as a surprise for him! In my head, I pictured an incredibly hard, exhausting effort needing to be put forth to create such an amazing dessert. Imagine my surprise when I scoured through Pinterest getting ideas and realized how simple it was. Why had I never tried it before?

I whipped this up in no time and even made some extras to bring down to my neighbors! My hubby LOVED it and I got “amazing wife points” for sure!

This mousse is great by itself or in cake, brownies, cupcakes, etc.

However you choose to use it, it is sure to be a hit!!
