      Fantastic!! Like the other reviewer, I was looking for a mousse recipe without raw eggs. I tried one without any eggs, but it just wasn't the same. This recipe is wonderful! Creamy, rich, chocolately, everything a chocolate mousse should be! It is worth buying really good quality chocolate for this mousse. Another winner from MizzNezz! Update: I made this again last night and it was just as great as the first time. I find the serving sizes are large, but I am not a dessert fanatic. I think this easily serves 6. To really make your guests swoon, garnish with some extra whipped cream and chocolate curls and then pour some Baileys or Kahlua liqeur on top!
