      Oh. My. Goodness. I definitely do NOT regret trying this! It was decadent, rich, chocolatey fudgy. Oh, what other adjectives can I use? AWESOME! The orange totally complements the chocolate, and the whiskey is just a slight nuance that you almost can't put your finger on. YUMMY!!! Made for ZWT8 Zingo. Thanks, awalde, for another great recipe!

      Excellent chocolate mousse! I made this about a month ago when we had neighbors coming over for dinner. It was loved by all 6 of us. I plan to double the recipe and make this again (but without the scotch) for Easter dinner dessert (all 4 grand-kids will be sharing dessert with the grown-ups). It makes a beautiful presentation. Definitely use the orange zest in and on top. It is what makes the mousse! Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)
