Whether kids, teens or adults, almost everybody loves chocolate, and hence this mousse too! the luscious dark chocolate and the contrasting whipped cream together make it a temptation hard to resist. What is more, this mousse is also one of the easiest to prepare. Just make sure that you use the right dark chocolate to ensure the best taste and colour. As far as possible, try not to store the chocolate in the fridge; else, bring it to room temperature before using in this recipe. Serve chilled with an elegant garnish of whipped cream.

I would like to give complete full 5 stars for this recipe.Yesterday being Sunday,I had guests at my place,so I wondered what to prepare so urgently so that the guests also will be happy! When I had earlier surfed the site,I had seen this recipe and also saw the video of this recipe too.Then remembering that I searched my fridge and found the whipped cream which I had already whipped and kept in fridge which I had used for doing icing on a cake and searched for chocolate and then what to wait for ,I immediately started my job and the mousse was simply yummy, also I added golden syrup too when I topped the mousse with whipped cream.I topped with golden syrup.And landed with extremely delicious recipe which all my guests enjoyed.Their elder kids were like Tarlaji's grand daughter in the video.It was a good dessert for the teenagers.Thanks and hats off to Tarlaji.
