Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Heavenly!! This was such a great chocolate mousse recipe, so delicate yet decadently rich. It's smooth, full of chocolate flavor, and the addition of the Irish Cream gives it that Je ne sais quoi touch that's missing from most of the other chocolate mousses I've made. Try it, you'll like it! Thanks, ImPat. We loved it!!
