There is nothing more disappointing than finding out the restaurant that served your favorite dessert has closed indefinitely. After every Broadway show in LA, my family and I would visit a little French restaurant a few blocks away and order their smooth and fluffy Chocolate Mousse. This satisfying dessert was always the perfect ending to a perfect evening. So, when I called to make reservations and nobody answered, I was crushed!
This Valentine's Day was the holiday for me to stop wallowing over this loss and try to discover a recipe that was similar enough to satisfy my chocolate craving. And I found one that's a keeper. This recipe is not as rich as others because it calls for less eggs, but it's every bit as chocolatey, airy and creamy. Garnish it with dark chocolate shavings, a raspberry and mint and it's a complete winner for The Day of Love. I may not have a man in my life, but this chocolate treat will do for now. ;)
Happy Valentine's Day!
