Recipe by The Sugar Witch

Smooth and scrumptious. This one can be easily made in the kitchen at home. Add a flavored liqueur to subtly change and enhance the flavor.

This was incredible chocolate mousse. I definitely suggest using the coffee suggested. I used a shot of espresso, and the hint of coffee flavor behind the creamy chocolate was just perfection. The recipe came together easily, and was so satisfying. Thanks for sharing!
