Notes

Melissa's Modifications:

This mousse is rich, creamy and delicious! You can a little peanut butter powder if you like the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.
Other Toppings to Try: Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries), chocolate shavings or mini chocolate chips, and slivered almonds are all great options.
