In the kitchen: Chocolate Mousse Cake
I've seen this a few places online and wanted to give it a try and then made it twice in two weeks. It's that yummy. The best thing about it is that it's not too heavy. Not as heavy as you'd think being so chocolate and all.
Essentially you just make two round cakes. You can make them from scratch or you can use a mix. Did it once each way. Both taste great.
Bake them then let them cool (this picture I was in a hurry to get the cake done and the stuff was dripping off it :) )
Level off the bottom cake - there are fancy tools to do that but I've never had one and always just used a knife. Which totally works.
Then add a layer of chocolate mousse. Like this one or this one or this one. Any chocolate mousse recipe will work.
So you layer that on top of your bottom cake. Then add skor bits. Top with your other round cake. And cover that with a chocolate ganache. Which you can find here. Then add more skor bits. And enjoy.
