MMMMMM! Another fast and easy dessert. I seem to like them don't I? This is a dessert that will leave everyone asking for the recipe. If you love chocolate, you will love this. I used Heath toffee bits but you could pick your favorite candy bar and chop it up. You could even use more than one kind of candy bar if you wanted to. I also sprinkled the toffee bits on top but grating chocolate on top is really good too.
The ingredients are pretty basic. The Jello Mousse is pretty new to the market and is so rich and chocolatey. You need two boxes of the mousse to make sure you have enough for two layers. If you make it in a 9x13 for a party, say, you would need three boxes for sure.
It helps if you have the cake cut into pieces and all of your ingredients ready to go before you start to layer. Mix the mousse last because it gets very thick.
Layer any way you want. I started with a little mousse in the glass but if you are doing a big bowl, I would start with the cake. There is not a lot of mousse and I would just use it in the two layers. Of course, you can always use another box of mousse if you want it really creamy and chocolatey!
Yummy! This is just so good you can't pass it up. Try it today. If you love chocolate this recipe is for you:)
