So, you know I have a love affair with chocolate. I adore it. I eat it daily. Every. Single. Day. So when I saw Giada de Laurentiis (I adore her, too) making this delicious looking chocolate mousse on her show, I knew I had to make it. It's different, it's easy to make and most importantly, it's really, really good. I imagine it would make the perfect V-day dessert, too. :)
Don't let the word 'avocado' sway you! I'll tell you why along with the recipe after the jump...
The one thing you should know about this recipe is that it is semi-healthy and incredibly creamy. The creaminess comes from four avocados that I PROMISE you can't taste. They are only there for texture.
Even though there are four avocados in this recipe, the real star of the recipe is the cocoa powder. If you can, buy the BEST cocoa powder you can find and afford. Good cocoa powder really makes a difference. I used a cocoa powder from a local chocolatier (you can order it online here). You can find also good cocoa powder at health food stores like Whole Foods. If you can only find regular cocoa powder, don't fret. It will still taste good!
