If you like quick sweets as much as we do and enjoy to entertain with something sweet then you will want to make this recipe part of your basic repertoire. This decadent little mousse is just perfect with a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, Port or a jammy Zinfandel.
We like it with dark chocolate, however if you prefer a lighter milk chocolate then just replace the dark chocolate with equal amounts of Lindt Milk Chocolate (Lindt Swiss Classic, Excellence Extra Creamy) Living in Europe Lind’t Chocolates with so many decadent fillings and flavors were among our favorites and we had always a few bars in the kitchen cupboard. This recipe was inspired by the Lindt master Chocolatier.
