Rachel Khoos Beautiful Chocolate Mousse With Cocoa Nibs


We don’t need an excuse to post a recipe like this one but if we did, then the fact it’s a chocolate dessert would be more than enough. Rachel has crafted a lovely dessert that is not that difficult to make but takes a little time to get done. Also, ideally it needs to chill in your fridge for about 4 hours, could you handle that? Would you want to wait?

There’s a couple of techniques you will need to master but as I said, nothing too difficult. It’s all worth it in the end because it’s a beautiful looking dessert that also tastes great.
