  1. Great recipe! How did you get the chocolate mousse shape? A special mold, or do you have a special technique?


  2. can you please let me know where you got the mold shape from? the shape is lovely!

  3. Is it okay if we use this recipe without the nuts? Will it taste weird?

    Great picture by the way. C:

  4. Check directions first it said melt chocolate and cream then it indicates whip cream there is only one set of cream in the recipe

  5. How much whipping cream do you need for step 2?
