Chocolate Mousse Cake – because ain’t nobody got time for just one fat, moist, scrumptious layer of chocolate cake; the delicious layer of Mousse is a MUST!
HI, Friends! HAPPY MONDAY!
How about a Chocolate Mousse Cake to get the week started?!
You know how when it gets hot out, you crawl back inside your house to turn on the AC? I did that the other day, but the AC wasn’t having it.
We’ve been in our new house for about 6 months now and everything was going pretty awesome until the other day.
Seriously? How complicated does it have to be to turn on the Air Conditioner?? Lemme tell you! It took 3 hours, 2 men, and 1 woman (ME!) to figure it out. E=mc2 did not take this long to figure out.
I walked inside the house, I pushed the “Cool” button, then the “ON” button. Then I waited for the blowing noise…
And waited…and waited. The beast wasn’t having it.
Since I’m too cheap and will never call a real repair man to fix something, I called my dad, the Priest, to come and help me fix it. Several button-pushing, on-and-off-switching, lever-turnings later, we figured it out! When that sucker finally gave in, we celebrated!
Honestly, I think the AC-installers do this on purpose so that you will HAVE to call them to come by and “fix” it for you. I don’t blame ’em – we all gotta make that money.
At the end of it all, the three of us sat down and each had a HUGE slice of this Chocolate Mousse Cake. At least we know how to properly celebrate a win.
Also, seriously? This cake is fantastic! I can’t describe just how amazing that layer of mousse IS. Swear, I had a few spoonfuls before adding it to the cake. Who wouldn’t?!? I used a hazelnut-flavored milk chocolate for it – best idea, ever!
And then, because a layer of chocolate cake AND a layer of mousse wasn’t enough, I added my favorite Whipped Vanilla Frosting, for good measure, of course.
If you are craving a big piece of cake, you need to make this and just hide it in the back of the fridge so that you can eat a slice-a-day for 8 days straight. And maybe even eat two slices on the last day, just to make sure that it’s perfect and share-worthy.
