Pineapple and Orange Mousse
I love mousses! Not mouses. But mousses. That extra 's' is pretty important isn't it?
This is light and sweet, easy to make, pretty impressive to look at and will keep well in the fridge for up to a week if not assembled. The caramel will keep for at least a month, though it does go quite solid in the fridge. (I digress, but the salted caramel would be amazing as the filling for chocolate bars. Just saying!)
As this recipe is being released in February, we thought it is time for you to make something un-chocolatey for the love of your life and this could be it. As a chocolate lover I do find it hard to move past anything chocolate, but I'm going to give it a red hot try. This recipe can ease the pain of less chocolate in your life. AS IF! (Go ahead, make TWO desserts, one decadent chocolate thing and then this amazingly light and airy one!) You will be glad you did.
