"This mousse is wonderful! Once you try it, you'll be making it again."
"I make this for my hubby 1-3 times per year. It's his favorite. I forgot where I get the recipe and have FINALLY bookmarked the page. But I found this again and so happy!! This is so easy and so very good. He will be very happy tonight when I present this after dinner :-)"
"Marvalous....absolutely delicious!!I could eat it every day."
"I live alone, so I just love this recipe. I double it, that way I can have it all week long. Also, I used dark chocolate chips. So a little mousse goes a long way. It is rich, but oh so good! Obviously, Rach_TheBoss didn't do something right. I'm am not the best cook, and I had no trouble at all. It was very easy to make. Carol Stubbs"
