      I love chocolate, so this called out to me. My DD make them for us, and we ate lingering onto each spoonful like it was our last. So so yummy!

      Double WOW! This is a fairly quick and easy dessert that I put together after work along with 3 other items and served to guests. My dinner guests commented on the delicate chocolate flavor. This is fabulous. I made the entire dessert about 2 hours before dinner and refrigerated the mousse and whipped cream until serving. I agree the homemade whipped cream balances against the chocolate mousse nicely. Next time I might mix in some finely chopped toffee pieces (like a Skor bar) in place of the grated chocolate. I think that would be fabulous too! One of my favorite recipes I ever made on zaar!

      WOW! This recipe is worth the little bit of extra work to yield what I think is a banner dessert. I used my food processor to make the shortcakes and my Magic Bullet to make the mousse and the whipped cream. Actually much easier to make than I anticipated and the results were fabulous. The mousse and the shortcakes both have a very deep chocolate flavor, offset beautifully by the fresh, cool whipped cream. (Don't skip the whipped wouldn't be the same!) Thanks for posting! I WILL make this again. ;)
