Did you know that April 3 is National Chocolate Mousse Day? I had no freaking idea. I mean really, no idea, National Chocolate Mousse Day!? While I may think it’s a little silly to have a day dedicated to a specific food I’m not one to pass up an opportunity to whip up something delicious.
I love simple desserts. I love all desserts it’s just that by the time I’ve worked out the kinks to a recipe, I’ve taste tested so many times that I don’t want to have anything to do with it by the time I’ve reached the finished product. I usually hit my cravings for something sweet after ‘B’ has gobbled up the last cupcake.
Yesterday, April 3rd, 2012, I made a vegan Chocoloate Raspberry ”Mousse”. Why the quotes you may ask? Dictionary.com describes mousse as a sweetened dessert with whipped cream as a base. My “mousse” has no such thing, but has the same qualities of a traditional mousse.
It’s a super quick prep time with only five ingredients, I’d say this one is a winner. It’s a wonderful dessert to make the night before and have sit over night for your guests to really firm up.
Simple and elegant,
Delicious and Classic,
and vegan to boot. Enjoy!
