real-life test kitchen: simple, delicious chocolate mousse for your valentine


On my recent birthday, a good friend who just graduated valedictorian from the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts baked my family a cake so good, it was entirely eaten by the next morning! To cheer them up, I made this chocolate mousse. The recipe was simple, but the results were wonderful — it was so delicious, I will be making it again for all my valentines this year! (And since Shelterrific contributors are asking, I’ll try to share my friend’s cake recipe soon, too.) — Holly D.
