This easy-to-make dessert is one of my favorites to serve. It looks so elegant, and the velvety texture, with a subtle hint of orange, is a perfect ending to any meal. -Shirley Glaab, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

"This recipe is outstanding! Not only is it easy to make, but the silky texture and delicious orange flavor set it apart from other chocolate mousse recipes. Although it makes 2 generous servings, the recipe can easily be doubled. My husband can't wait for me to make it again!"
