Creamy chocolate that melts on your tongue, in between layers of cake sprinkled with sweet cherry liqueur.
A worthy end to a (Valentine) dinner.
You know what dessert is the favorite of my husband? A delicious chocolate mousse. He loves it. And of course I make it regularly as dessert after Sunday dinner (we always eat a special dessert on Sunday).
For Valentine's Day I like to go a step further. I bake a delicious cake, sprinkle with a sweet cherry liqueur, combine it with the chocolate mousse and pipe it in a beautiful dessert glass.
A Valentine Dessert where you scrape clean the glass. So I know what I'm going to have as dessert for Valentine's Day and you?
It's a good taste!
