I hate chocolate mousse. I hate chocolate ice cream too, and chocolate fudge and chocolate pudding. I hate any sort of overindulgence in that flavor. Please, don’t flame me. For me, chocolate is just too strong and needs to be enjoyed in small quantities or with other flavors (like orange).
So when I stumbled upon a recipe for Chocolate M-o-o-usse with Olive Oil over at Delicious Days, I was about to move on… but then thought, “Hmm… if it tastes more like olive oil with a little chocolate, then perhaps I’d like it…” Since it was just a few ingredients and even fewer steps, I gave it a shot.
Oh my gawd. OH MY GAWD. My husband will be lucky to get a small serving when he makes it home tonight. I’ve been licking every bowl, spoon and surface used during the making of this luscious dessert. I am in love. It actually tastes like olive oil, with a rich chocolate flavor added in. I did happen to muss up the measurements slightly. I always get thrown when converting grams to ounces. But it was yummy just the same.
We’re in the midst of more snow right now up in Boston, and I plan to stay home most of the day. I have 4 pretty white cups of the m-o-o-usse in my fridge. Hubbie, I wish you the best in getting home, and getting a taste. Good luck to you, sir. Good luck.
