Even in restaurants, chocolate mousse seems to be nothing more than chocolate pudding. This recipe is the real thing. It is not difficult to make but your taste buds will be delighted with a melange of flavors - chocolate, coffee, and citrus. And what an aftertaste!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Creamy and chocolaty, this mousse is sinful. We loved the Grand Marnier and Kahlua. The Kahlua adds a slight coffee flavor while the Grand Marnier gives a faint taste of orange. Its texture is perfect - light and fluffy. This is definitely a rich and decadent dessert.
