    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    Oh, this is good! It is a cool and creamy mint-flavored chocolate mousse studded with cubes of airy angel-food cake -- a super summer dessert! Cookbook author Sorosky says this tastes "just like an exquisite chocolate after-dinner mint." Cooking time is actually chilling time.
