Very, VERY good chocolate mousse, which is also extremely healthy and easiest ever!! In other words, UNBELIEVABLE! I just mashed the avocado with syrup and cocoa, YUM! Added the rest of the ingredients and didn't really notice much difference. Healthy chocolate indulgence, which tastes very sinful. Thick and dense, yes, the way we like it!
Very rich, very decadent. I used Hersey's special dark 100% cacao powder. Though it is definitely too heavy to be called "mousse", it didn't bother us. The texture can easily be lightened by using 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream. Whip until soft peaks form and fold into finished mousse mixture. Make sure to refrigerate it over night because it definitly improves the flavor.
As Elmotoo said, "...the avocadoes sounded too weird," & so this was possibly meant for me to make! I'm not a fan of avocado, but after recently making some great tasting fudge with Velvetta cheese, this recipe was a no-brainer! Surprise of surprises, the taste of avocado got lost somewhere in the mix (!), & this curned into A VERY TASTY CHOCOLATE CONCOCTION! Although the 1st serving didn't give me a proper chocoholic fix, the 2nd serving did, after I added some of the optional dark chocolate on top! A worthy addition to my chocoholic cookbook! Thanks!

I've been eyeing this recipe for a long time but the avocadoes sounded too weird. BUT it works wonderfully! Use really good cocoa powder for this. It is very yummy! The only problem is, it's NOT mousse-y at all. It's very thick & dense. Is there a vegan whipped topping? I de-veganized it when I added whipped cream to lighten it. Made for the veg*n tag 10/08.
