Before you send me any more queries about EVOO. Remember this peeps.
EVOO. Extra. Virgin. Olive. Oil. The only way to go in all of my recipes. I predominantly use the Cobram Estate variety as they are not only a wonderful Australian success story, they have the cleanest tasting EVOO and all the science and expertise to back up their health claims. (SO yes, this recipe is good for you!)
Egg free Chocolate Mousse. Light, fluffy and chocolatey...best served immediately, without refrigeration...what a shame. Gotta' eat it all!! The oil will create quite a stodgy texture if refrigerated, not unpleasant if you are a chocoholic like me, but the mousse texture is best when first completed. YUM...don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Add berries to cut the sweetness. Or for a little crunch a crispy waffle would work well. Chocolate curls optional.

Best served immediately as EVOO is not that great after being in the fridge for any length of time. Using the best extra virgin olive oil you can find is essential to the taste of this recipe.
