Hi Merrill, I remember this recipe when it was first posted, and am eager to check out the texture. I've done a baine-marie version of mousse and maybe the egg yolk one, but I'm hoping this simpler one will be the the winner. Would you say this sets similar to those or the ganache description makes me think it's more like a truffle?

Absolutely delicious and incredibly easy to make. I omitted the cointreau as it formed part of a dessert table where kids were able to partake from. I served in on little teaspoons as part of a sampler plate. Just perfect.

what other brands / varieties of chocolate have people used for this recipe? would something like a bar of cholocolate (e.g., Lindt) be suitable?

I just made this for tonight and am so surprised at how ridiculously easy AND delicious this is! Definitely keeping this recipe, thank you! :-)

Made this last night as part of a New Year's bash -- I had three Food 52 recipes on my menu and all of them were hits. Only change: I prefer the mousse right after it's made -- it's so light and fluffy and so damn delicious! Will be making it again real soon. If you like a denser, truffle-like texture than leave this baby in the fridge overnight.

Had no Cointreau on hand, so subbed in howtocookabear's cardamom blood-orange syrup from her Bloodhound recipe; spectacular!

Made this for a belated Valentine's dinner this week. Just delicous! One question - is there a better way to grate the chocolate than a box grater? Even on the largest holes the pieces seemed too flimsy to hold their shape in the mousse.

It is soooo rich. Like digging into chocolate truffles. I couldn't finish it even if I tried (and I consider chocolate a basic food group).

Can this desert be made 1 day in advance? If so, can i put the mousse into a larger dish so it is more portable?
