Chocolate Mousse

As salaamu alaikum

I've been meaning to make chocolate mousse for a while now, and Alhamdulillah I finally got around to it a couple days ago. I always thought it was quite difficult and required some real cooking/baking skills. But hey, I (of all people) did it! Thus we conclude, it's not as difficult as it seems, and still tastes delicious - as if you really did have those amazing skills at hand and conjured up a little taste of heaven.

I cut up some strawberries and poured the mousse over it, then put little pieces of strawberry on top and left it in the refrigerator to set. It tastes awesome MashaAllah! I was extremely happy with the result. It wasn't so sweet either, which is good. The strawberries were really an added bonus. It was like a burst of flavour in your mouth and was a great addition to the mousse. Obviously, chocolate and strawberries are just meant to be. But ofcourse, it still tastes just as great by itself.

I was going to try topping it off with whipped cream and chocolate shavings (of any chocolate)...but...it's all gone *-) so I guess I'll have to try that when I make it again InshaAllah. Here are some pics I took of it that night:

TheStraightPath: JazakAllahu Khair. Yeah I agree, but it's also very hard to stay away from, what with the chocolate and strawberries and whatnot..
