Chocolate and Orange Mousse with Whiskey


It’s very easy to prepare a chocolate mousse, but it is also super easy to prepare this decadent, rich, chocolatey fudgy version. The orange totally complements the chocolate, and the whiskey is just a slight nuance that you almost can’t put your finger on. YUMMY!!!

Try this you will not regret it! ….I need to make this again, it was too delicious!
