Mocha Mousse by Elana's Pantry

Looking for a decadent chocolaty dessert? You've come to the right place.

The Good
Wonderfully chocolaty taste
Nice buzz from coffee
Great texture

The Bad
Uses vegan palm oil shortening

Overall - 5/5 Stars

This recipe was simple and downright awesome. I love the combination of chocolate and coffee for a desert and the crumbs of coffee bean give the mouse an even more dynamic texture. This recipe is thick - just like mousse should be.

My only hesitation with this is that it calls for palm oil shortening. I'll have to do a little more research to see this is something to be used sparingly or not at all. Either way, it didn't stop me from making it, and I already had some left over from making these Paleo Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.  Those actually weren't as good as they look.
