An irresistible combination of chocolate mousse and fresh strawberries, This makes a delicious summer dessert for a dinner party. Use any kind of crushed biscuits as your base...shortbread, hobnobs, digestives, etc.
Delicious simple dessert. I used plain hobnobs. I didn't put cream on the top as it was rich enough as it was. Will definitely make it again. - 05 Jul 2013
I feel guilty writing a review, because I cheated on the recipe so much that what I came out with was a completely different recipe. But the inspiration and the results I got were such a success! I made a graham cracker crust with 1 1/2 cups (or 1 individual package of whole crackers) graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, and 1/3 cup melted butter, mixed and pressed flat into a 9 inch springform. Did the strawberries as directed, being careful to cut the bottoms at a slight angle to they pressed flat againt the pan sides. Then (forgive me Eleanor) I am so lazy that I just used two boxes of packaged mousse mix instead of making my own. It pulled away from the sides of the pan perfectly, and was georgeous! Got tons of oohs and aahs. It was light and cool and perfect. Later I did it with fresh raspberries, which I think might be even better. Thank you so much for such a wonderful and impressive dessert idea! - 19 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Best dessert I have ever made!!! Very easy and absolutely beautiful. Only changes I made were to use 1 1/2 cups oreo cookie crumbs and 4 1/2 tbles butter for the crust so it would not break up when being cut. I put parchment paper on bottom of pan and that made it easy to slide onto serving plate. YOu must try..will NOT be disappointed. - 13 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
