Chocolate Mousse Cake
It is probably one of the best chocolate mousse cake that you have ever tasted! guaranteed!
The Vitamix definitely makes it very airy, fluffy and moussey in texture.
Another way you can use this recipe, is in individual glass dishes without the crust, just the mousse.
It is a delight. Especially after a big meal, all you want is something small and sweet to hit the spot.
The cake is super easy to make with very few ingredients that you most likely have in your pantry and fridge.
I would like to hear your thoughts after you tried it.
Good Luck :)
