chocolate mousse cake

Sometimes I realize I'm not sure that I've shared my real winners with you.  This is one of those times and given Valentine's Day coming up I had to share this with you now.  Similar to the little heart tarts I just shared with you this one is simple enough and has always worked for us.

Today we made it for my aunt and uncle who are in from out of town.  It's a great dessert to make for guests and can be spruced up with a sprinkle of powdered sugar right before they arrive.
