Mocha Mousse Bars

Mocha Mousse Bars

Gooey chocolate crust, with the smoothest of smooth coffee flavored mousse ! Outstanding !

We finished this batch in no time at all. And I’m not even a huge fan of coffee in general. The mousse takes a few hours to set, but once it is set, it is so creamy.

When you take this out of the refrigerator, serve it immediately as the mousse would soften if left out too long.

This is really the best of both worlds whereas texture is concerned – smooth and creamy topping with a very chewy chocolate crust. I should really call this a base rather than a crust, as a crust is normally crunchy, right? Well, whatever you want to call it, it is pure deliciousness !

{And soooo simple to make …}
