"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!"

"I make this most Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners! I've made a few times for single Soldiers at the barracks whenever my hubby had duty and it has always been a hit :)"
