I love dessert. And chocolate! I know that I have a lot of mousse recipes on the site. But these are perfect recipes. You can take your pick according to what kinda mousse you feel like eating. If I could give up savoury and live on desserts, I probably would! But that's for another story. This Jiggly Chocolate Mousse Cake is the best! Jiggly, soft and delicious. To me, it tastes just like a chocolate Panna Cotta!
This delicious dessert comes with a warning! Warning! Addictive Dessert! Eat At Own Risk! You have been warned! I've done my part now. Don't come for me when you can't put down the spoon.
