Growing up, one of my all time favourite desserts was chocolate mousse. If it was on the menu, it was in my tummy. I couldn't get enough of it.
I loved it most when it was light and airy, almost like a fluffy pillow, and not too chocolaty.
I loved it so much that I remember going into the local Taco Bills with one of my girlfriends, back when we were on our "P" Plates, and ordering 2 chocolate mousse desserts to take away. No Mexican food, just the desserts!
We were the talk of the kitchen.
Over the years I've hunted high and low for a chocolate mousse recipe that reminds me of those days and unfortunately I've only ever found ones that are either too bitter, too rich, too heavy, or waaay too complicated.
