Vegan Dark Chocolate Orange Mousse




If you ask me, mousse is one of the most underrated desserts! People often mistake its simplicity for a lack of indulgence.

But this stuff is oh-so decadent!!

This is seriously going to be my go-to for any get-togethers or dinner parties I may host in the future!

This mousse is crazy simple! Only 7 ingredients. No baking. And takes about 5 minutes to whip together.

It's the definition of fool-proof!

Best of all, it is sure to knock the socks off whoever is lucky enough to get invited to your next shindig!

The secret to this amazing mousse is Honey Acre's Dark Chocolate Orange Truffles! After that first delicious bite, it is hard to believe these truffles are made with only 3 ingredients: cocoa, honey, and orange extract!

I have never been a fan of orange flavored chocolate. But these have converted me into a believer of what a decadant pairing they are!

Got 5 minutes? Then you got time to whip up this incredible mousse!
