    gemini08's Note:

    This recipe hails from Austria, the use of chocolate with whipping cream and cinnamon is typically Austrian. Even though there is no gelatine used, it firms up nicely and has a creamy, silky texture. 2 hours of cooling is included in the cooking time.

      Oh gosh this was so good! Chocolate mousse is my very favorite dessert and only one restaurant made it perfectly but now I can make it at home. Just a bit of orange flavor that goes so well with the chocolate and it is not hard to make at all. This will be enjoyed again! Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef - Fall 2012.

      Clear five stars from a very happy DH who had this for his 50th birthday and raved about it! This is so much more quickly made than mousse au chocolat with eggs, I'll keep making this now when I want to make orange chocolate mousse. I used 70 percent organic chocolate with orange flavouring and whipping cream with 30 percent fat content - we don't have heavy whipping cream here. But the texture turned out awesome, and it looked most elegant. Thanks for posting this winner!!

      OMG, this is soooo good, and you are right about it being easy. I was a little nervous when I noticed it had no sugar and semi-sweet chips, but shouldn't worried as it was great. I did add a teaspoon of vanilla to the whipped cream but that was the only change. It was so awesome as you'd taste the chocolate and then get a taste of cinnamon and then orange - and not overly sweet, loved this and will be making it often. Mad for PAC fall 2011
