May 17th is our third year anniversary. I thought of making a special cake to celebrate it, immediately the cake which came to my mind is a rich chocolate mousse cake. I have been wanting to try that cake for quite a long time. So i took this opportunity to up that up. And guess what it turned out to be a huge success. The cake turned out to be fudgy, chocolaty and totally yummy.
Chocolate Mousse with Marshmallows
The first step in making the cake is to make a batch of a delicious fluffy chocolate mousse. I have already shared a chocolate mousse recipe with marshmallows in this blog. So i wanted to try a simple version of it and this is that.
This recipe is a very basic one, it needs just chocolate and cream and nothing else. When i took a mouthful of this delicious mousse it was spot on..Hope you give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
