This mousse was always my grandmother’s masterpiece. We all looked forward to Yom Tov meals at Grandma’s house because we knew that in addition to all her incredible food, we would be enjoying her chocolate mousse! As I learned to adjust my Yom Tov cooking, I knew that her chocolate mousse still had to be on our menu.
The cookie crumble is so outstanding that we bring a bowl of it to the table so we can keep on adding more.
When serving a crowd, I make it in a springform pan; otherwise, I make it in individual ramekins so they can be pulled out of the freezer as needed. Sometimes (okay, more than sometimes) we find ourselves having one on a random weekday.
Yields 1 (8 or 9 inch) springform pan or 10 ramekins
