Mousses are always a delight to have and specially when it is chocolate...But dates gives this a very prominent flavour..As chopped dates is added, when you eat there is a prominent flavour of dates..And also the sweetness from chocolate and crunch from walnuts makes this recipe irresistable..So if you like dates you should definitely indulge in this dessert.
