Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This chocolate mousse cake looks very fancy, but no one needs to know how easy this yummy dessert is to make. The dark chocolate and strawberries are sooo good together. There's chocolaty goodness in every bite. This dessert is cool, creamy and a great for summertime!

Note: We did use non-stick spray on the springform pan to prevent sticking. Pan came off no problem.

3 large
1 c
1/3 c
