Hope all of you had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend. Well, all of you that celebrate it that is. Hope the rest of you had a fabulous weekend anyway, even if you weren’t stuffing your faces with turkey, rolls, and pie. 🙂
I sure enjoyed my little blogging break spending time with family. But now I am back. With an over the top amazing dessert recipe. Because all of your pie has been long devoured. And you need something else to satisfy that sweet tooth, right?
If you follow my Facebook page, you may have seen that I hosted Book Club at my house a couple weeks ago. This is the dessert I served. Suffice it to say that I think it totally made up for the fact that my kitchen renovation is incomplete, and that I had baseboards lying on the floor. It is decadent. And surprisingly easy to make. So if you’re expecting guests and your house is less than spotless, serve this. They will totally forget about your clutter and dust bunnies!
I originally found this recipe over at Our Best Bites, and then proceeded to tweak it. They used a straight cake mix, but I doctored it up to make it even more moist and delicious. The recipe said to only use half of the mousse, but I think it needs all of it. You can’t have too much chocolate mousse can you?
I also adapted the ganache recipe, because the original made way too much. And having a bowl of rich and creamy chocolate sitting around begging to be eaten by the spoonful is not good for my willpower. Which in turn is not good for my waistline.
Hope you enjoy this yummy dessert!
