I actually have this recipe in a cookbook of mine and it's delicious!!! I'm a novice in the kitchen and it was quite easy to make. I did however use a slightly larger pan so I made more of the first chocolate mix and it turned out great. A simple desert that will knock the socks off your guests.
I love this recipe, it is so easy, quick and tasty. Thanks for posting Evie.
Not good at all, I could eat the whole thing!! Specially the mousse! Thanks for a great recipe, I have 3 lots of guests coming for dinner over the next three days and I'll be serving this to them with icecream. Only thing I'll change next time is the amount of coffee on the finger biscuits - I took "brush" quite literally and there isn't much coffee flavour. Still fantastic though!!
