Someone in the "Looking for..." group asked about this recipe so I found mine and posted it there. Thought I'd go ahead and get it posted here as well. I came across my Peanut Butter Cake with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting recipe too that I'm going to get added here just for Thea. Someone also asked about that. Seems I get a lot of my recipes dug out and found that way. That's why I love that group. It makes me search for things I haven't made in along time. This mousse is great plain but also goes well piped inside cupcakes, between layers of cake or cookie cups. Don't forget the milk!
