Reviews for Speedy Chocolate Mousse
"Just made this dish. I would soften the cream cheese before adding to chocolate mixture. I didn't and I have little bits of the cream cheese in the mousse. It still is very good. I forgot to buy the rum extract, so I used Kahlua instead, very good. I also used semi-sweet morsels, so there was no need to finely chop. Will definitely make again."
"I used this recipe to fill puff pastries. Didn't have dark corn syrup so I used light. It still turned out very well. I also used a dark German chocolate. It was easy to pipe into the pastries (I used my pampered chef decorator). Will use this recipe again!"
