“Chocolate is happiness you can eat.”
– Author Ursula Kohaupt
How true is that sentiment? For me, there is nothing more thrilling to my tastebuds than the sublime, creamy, rich taste of dark chocolate, and there is nothing more deliciously decadent than this recipe, my friend and photographer Maxine Picard, shared with me for chocolate mousse. Chocolate Mousse Divine is an elegant, mouthwatering dessert that is so simple to make and is sure to make you tingle in culinary delight!
