Tasty but very firm

The flavor is very good. And just after the mousse is mixed, it's creamy like a traditional mousse. But after refrigeration, it becomes very firm. Almost like it needs to be sliced and served.

We are chocolate lovers and I made this when my family was home. It was a huge hit! We aren't coffee drinkers, so I left out the coffee and water. Super easy, very rich, and I will make it again for sure.

Another great chocolate recipe.
