I have a theory that chocolate slows down the aging process... it may not be true, but do I dare take the chance? Hope you enjoy, sweet friends. xoxoxo

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This rich and creamy chocolate mousse recipe seems super fancy but it's so easy to prepare. The coffee really enhances the flavor of the chocolate. Grand Marnier adds a subtle orange flavor and contributes to the richness of this dessert. Your friends will be very impressed when you serve them this!
