I tried this mousse the other day with Guittard Semi-Sweet chocolate chips and lactose-free milk. It was very delicious. It didn't set up as firm as I thought it might so it was more like a pudding than a mousse. I'll definitely be making this recipe again because the family loved it! I think I'll try orange extract next time!
