  • “Beautiful!I followed the recipe to the letter for the mousse.I topped it with whipped cream and a crumbled peppermint crisp.My guests loved it.I was concerned that it could have been more aerated (even though it was quite light).One female guest said the only improvement I could have made would be if I had waited for the melted chocolate in the blender to cool somewhat prior to adding the egg yolks.The improvement was not required for enjoyment that night, but if you’re a perfectionist, that might be the way to go.Thanks for sharing the recipe Millie!”
