    I’m not really greatly into chocolate mousse, but would totally try this if you made it for me. Plus, I like cream cheese. I might swipe quite a few spoonfuls myself, in fact!

  2. Evan Thomas

    Wow. Definitely want this. I’m supposed to make a cheesecake for a party in 2 weeks. I don’t know how I’m going to wait that long.

  3. Gabby

    Hope you’re doing all right Hannah! Just remember to take deep breaths- stress only makes it worse!

    This chocolate cup looks amazing- so rich!

    CONGRATS! You’re freeeeeee!
    I owe you an email too. Let’s just say I want you here by August 24th. We’ll talk more through email ASAP!

    Oh my gracious that looks amazing!

  6. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    Ack! I have to pretend like I never saw this deliciousness. Not allowed in my training program… but I really want to face-plant into that bowl. Immediately, if not sooner.

    So, um, if you want somewhere to store those cups and saucers while you’re away … 😀

  8. Leah

    looks delicious Hannah, very rich for me though, cause im a nanna lol

    Exciting times ahead Hannah, i wish you all the best xoxo

    Hannah I would never want to take from you the feeling of being a gloriously-free metaphorically-sparkly-winged soul-dancing job-untethered person. On Monday though when I go back to work I will be supremely jealous 🙂

    Well I would definitely NOT be a (ugh ugh ugh) pelican (ugh ugh)
    But I don’t know what I would be either – maybe a kiwi? Round and fluffy and likes to sniff things and stay up late.

    Am not a big Cadbury fan, but I do love mousse – there’s never enough of it in my life in fact, so thanks for reminding me of it! Might have to set that imbalance right this weekend.

    Dear Hannah,

    If I could be any kind of bird, I would like to be Superman because he can fly faster than any other bird in the world.

    Freedom!!! I’m so excited that in a few weeks you’ll be swirling your sparkly energy throughout my hemisphere. Lucky, lucky me.

    Well, spirit animal tests tell me I am very far from an owl, so despite my owl inclination I suppose I am not owlish in form or function. I would like to be a swallow, because that would be the prettiest soaringest bird-me.

    I dread doctor visits given my current state of health insurance lackingness. I took quite a scary tumble when we were out biking last night, and for some time could only lay in the trail looking up to watch the treetops move, wondering how I was going to afford to pay stretcher men to come get me. Eventually I was able to get up on my own, once I stopped gasp-screaming and my breath came back to my lungs. Today I’ve hobbled around extensively and felt old and sore. But enough about me, what I mean to say is, I hope you get all healed up quick-like. xo.

    Im glad you aren’t scared of doctors (like *ahem* someone was very slightly :P) 😀
    Hoping everything is going well now!
    This mousse is the perfect treat to eat, no, devour after all this running round!
    So creamy and chocolatey and cream-cheesy 🙂

    Hope you feel better/get everything sorted health-wise…. why does it always ALL happen at once!?!

  16. Caitlin @ livelovenyc

    wowza, these look great. i love chocolate anything, particularly chocolate mousse.

    i can totally relate to the unexpected medical costs! i recently had my wisdom teeth out and had to dish out thousands of dollars. who knew taking care of yourself was so damn expensive?

    hope you had an awesome week

  17. Margaret

    You ate eggs!!! = protein + zinc + vitamin B12
    That makes me happy. 😛
    I’ve never made mousse and I don’t even think I’ve ever eaten it, but yours looks smooth and creamy. 🙂

  18. Kath Lockett

    Like you, I prefer my chocolate ‘whole’ and not as a flavour in a dessert. Same goes for chocolate milk which is the devil’s own urine and always – always – utterly disappointing. Thank goodness for coffee, berries and caramel consolations instead.

    These, however, look rather good and I have a very similar recipe that I use for my leftover chocolate stash too. As it happens, Sapphire made them for our dessert last night! Weird coincidence or what?

  19. JohannaGGG

    I much prefer the sound of cheesecake mousse to regular old creamy mousse. I am sure you were reminded of it by your medical appts because if you had eaten more of this mousse maybe you wouldn’t have needed your appts because you would be super healthy (ok ’tis wishful thinking). Well here’s hoping that there are very few medical appts ahead of you – they are always worse in a foreign land – and I am glad to see there are no toe specialists among your appts 🙂

    Hmm, I need to go back and read the announcement. Clearly I’m not caught up on the news. I hope the job-freeness is a chosen state. These do look rather delicious I must say. I normally pick girlie/fruity desserts rather than chocolate ones.

  21. Samuel Clein

    I would be a mallard.

  22. Jo Smith

    My daughter and I both went ooooohhhhhh for a long time when we opened this post. That looks incredibly delectable. Glad to hear you have your sparkly wings on. I would be a Kookaburra and laugh all day.

  23. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    So happy, again, for your sparkling, soaring, exciting freedom 🙂 Just move on from the dental and optometry and doctor’s visits, ok?

    This, if I’m honest, is the sort of mousse I like best, and do miss since I’ve gone off gelatin. Much as I like chocolate avocado pudding, it is not fluffy like this. This looks divine, and matches perfectly with the beautiful cups.

  24. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Serving the mousse in those beautiful cups is such a gorgeous idea! 😀

  25. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    This looks so smooth and delicious! I’m currently in your ‘hood of Canberra and eating a box of chocolates. I’ll eat the next one for you! 😉

  26. Alisa

    Oh you poor thing! Well, you made the right thing – decadent creamy chocolate cures all. Perhaps your true destiny is as a chocolatier?

    A hummingbird.

  27. Errign

    I’ve just seen your announcement post – if you find yourself in New England, let me know (or maybe in Virginia, if I end up there, but that is still a hush-hush thing, both in real life and on the blog!) Congratulations, Hannah!

  28. Richa@HobbyandMore

    Just read your announcement.. big changes.. but they will soon settle down.. take care.. ea lots of chocolate and safe travels! if u happen to plan to hit seattle.. give me a holler!

  29. Hotly Spiced

    Oh dear. You have reminded me that a medical overhaul is long overdue. Good to get those things out of the way before your travels. I love your pretty cup and saucer. And your mousse looks deliciously smooth xx

  30. Whispering Gums

    So glad you didn’t make this the day you went to the dentist …

    As for a bird, I think I’ve always wanted to be a Pink Flamingo. They are so pretty and can balance on one leg. Or an owl. They are so wise.

  31. April

    Boo for expensive medical bills. But yay for an amazing chocolate-y cheesecake mousse! It looks so good.

  32. Mike

    Oh I wish I was a wedge-tailed eagle with a massive wing span, soaring and swirling high in the sky above the fields, trying to spot a chocolate mousse and then diving down to swipe a spoonful. Ah, how good is that!

  33. Hannah

    I usually wouldn’t opt for a chocolate mousse either if given a choice of other flavors, but that creamy, fluffy texture absolutely sells it!

  34. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Oh no I hope it’s all good now at the dentist 🙂 Ohhh this is a great recipe thanks ~ I have a friend coming over for dinner this saturday i might as well make her this for dessert 😀

  35. Agnes

    More sugar. The evidence is overwhelming.
