      Chocolatey, smooth, rich and easy to make - what more could you ask for? I had never made chocolate mousse before, and was surprised had how simple this recipe was, yet it produced "wow" results.

      I was looking for a lighter airier version - simple but way too dense and thick for my liking. Used good quality chocolate and brandy as both will make a difference in taste.
