A delicious looking dessert from Sugar Free Cooking. VARIATIONS - Use strawberries or peaches in place of the apricots. SERVING IDEA - Serve decorated with twisted strips of orange peel and a crisp biscuit if liked. The cooking time is the chill time estimated.

Definitely a different kind of mousse for me to make, but we certainly did enjoy its great flavor combo! My other half insisted on a small amount of fudge topping, but I liked it just the way it was, & that comes from a dedicated chocoholic! Thanks for this wonderful dessert recipe!
