    Sarah Bernhardt, the great French actress, captured Danish hearts to such an extent that they named these special chocolate mousse topped meringue cakes after her.

      These sweet sensations are really more like a cookie than a cake & are a classic confection here in Iceland. They are quite simply *TDF* & fairly labor-intensive to get right, but so worth every moment of the effort. Chilling the meringue bases well b4 applying the choc mousse & again b4 adding the layer of choc topping is key to success. It also works best to cool the choc topping just a bit & apply it w/a soft pastry brush than to pour it over them or dip them in it. They are served right from the freezer here. All that said, they are truly amazing, 10* worthy & decadent choc heaven w/every bite! Yum! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
