It doesn’t get much better than a week of testing chocolate recipes and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it felt like the perfect time for a little chocolate love. Interestingly, it was much easier to recruit recipe testers than when I was working on lentil soup week!
In the process of testing the gooey chocolate desserts , I discovered a fabulous brand of dark chocolate chips. Aldi’s Baker’s Corner brand, at the bargain price of about $1.79 per 10oz bag, has officially stolen my heart from Ghirardelli – not an easy feat!
After a few hours in the Kitchen up to my elbows in dark chocolate chips, eggs, vanilla, espresso powder and whipped cream a winner was crowned.
This rich, smooth, intensely delicious Chocolate Mouse was the hands down favorite of my eager testers. As a bonus, it’s easy enough for a weeknight meal and decadent enough for a special dinner.
I wish you and yours a happy Valentine’s Day and invite you to enjoy a little chocolate love too.
