chocolate is to check the ingredients and allergen warnings on the wrapper.
What are some topping ideas for vegan chocolate mousse?
With this particular recipe, because it includes dried figs, we're betting that you'll have some leftovers, so slice some of those up and lay them on top. They’ll have a beautiful design and pale color that accents the dark mousse. You can also top with toasted nuts
