    This recipe was absolutely aweful. I amde 4 mousse' for a 'mousse comparison' night and everyone really disliked it. What a shame.  -  03 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is fluffy and rich. Next time, however, I'll try melting the chocolate and marshmallow together. When I added the hot marshmallow to the melted chocolate it seized up. I stirred and stirred but still had chocolate chunks. It didn't hurt the flavor, but I would have preferred the mousse without the chocolate chunks. Don't let this stop you from trying it however. It's really delicious!  -  14 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
