coconut & date chocolate mousse

2020-01-10T23:38:54+00:00

  The classic French 'Mousse au chocolat' is primarily made from melted chocolate, butter, eggs (separated) and cream, and while I love the smooth, silky texture and rich taste, it's just a little too much cream for me. The texture of this [...]
