I was really looking forward to making this dessert, so I was disappointed with the outcome. I felt like the brownie part was flavorless and more of just a base. However, I thought the strawberries helped so much! One of my coworkers said they give your mouth a break from the chocolate. Definitely add lots of strawberries. On the plus side, it was easy to make. Lots of steps, but I didn't have a food processor and just used my blender and it worked fine. All my coworkers said it looked fantastic though.
Flavors for All

This recipe is a good one to make substitutions to without destroying the bases yummy flavor. Switch out the wafer cookies with any number of flavors that are on the market today and it still tastes yummy. The strawberries are an ingredient that I would not skimp on, the more the merrier. The chocolates can be substituted also. It was a very joyful dessert to make, not too easy and not so difficult that it was a chore. I'd do it again for sure. If the dessert lasts more than one day, it tastes more mellow each following day, which makes the mousse, moussier.
Beautiful & delicious

What a fabulous way to enjoy the love of chocolate! Even though this recipe is rated "challenging", I found it quite simple. The family was thrilled by this dessert, especially the kids who thought it was a special occasion because it had the chocolate wafer rolls which they have been informed that these cookies are for special occasions! Not anymore!!! My oldest daughter claims"Now this is what I call death by chocolate!"

I wanted something to test my new found love of cooking and this definately is time consuming and there are alot of ingredients i had to go out and buy but for a holiday or special occassion it is peffect. People were very impressed because its so pretty and professional looking and tastes just as good as it looks. Me and most of my family hate coffee but the coffee here adds a nice flavor. Also i DID NOT use brandy because i am not of age to buy any and did not use a whole cup of nuts. The brownie is not very thick so to me a whole cup would be overwhelming. Also i rubbed the whole springform pan with butter and then dusted flower over it because if this sticks to the sides it will definately rip it apart. Take your time follow directions carefully and you will wow people with this one!

This was time consuming, but very good. Not sure if I would make it again because I have other recipes that are just as good that take less time. Everyone enjoyed it though and it looks very impressive on a holiday table!
