    Fantastic!! Like the other reviewer, I was looking for a mousse recipe without raw eggs. I tried one without any eggs, but it just wasn't the same. This recipe is wonderful! Creamy, rich, chocolately, everything a chocolate mousse should be! It is worth buying really good quality chocolate for this mousse. Another winner from MizzNezz! Update: I made this again last night and it was just as great as the first time. I find the serving sizes are large, but I am not a dessert fanatic. I think this easily serves 6. To really make your guests swoon, garnish with some extra whipped cream and chocolate curls and then pour some Baileys or Kahlua liqeur on top!

    Wow, this is just too good for words! I haven't been able to find a good recipe for chocolate mousse that didn't contain raw egg whites until now. Heavenly!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
