Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse Torte

Recipe photo courtesy of GENTL & HYERS

In the grand tradition of European pastry, this torte alternates layers of crisp butter-wafer cookies with a dense bittersweet chocolate mousse. Best served chilled and thinly sliced, this dessert is elegant; the cookies are store-bought, so it's delightfully easy, too.

    Ah ha! This is the chocolate mousse recipe that I have been searching for - just what I had in mind as a filling for a very decadent birthday cake - perfect!

    I only had 75% cacao chocolate, so I used more sugar ( to taste) and whipping cream. The result was wonderful. Light, airy mousse. The wafers absorbed some of the moisture from the cream but still had a slight crunch. My husband loved it. Very easy recipe.
