I posted the photo for this Chocolate Mousse Chocolate Cookie Cake on Instagram last week and people seemed to be really excited for it! (Read: everyone went gaga.)
And for good reason. This recipe makes 12 servings; I live alone with my boyfriend, and in the 3 days since I created this ultimate food porn recipe, there is one slice left in the fridge, and I am trying really really really hard not to eat because it’s Mr Cookie Monster’s slice.
This cake is made of all the things I love: it’s creamy, chocolatey, rich, decadent and yet so simple to make. Dangerously simple, even. It takes only 4 ingredients and 15 minutes to make, though you need to factor in the time the cake needs to set. It’s worth the wait, though! (And you can lick the chocolate off the saucepan when you’re “washing” the dishes.)
For me, this is the perfect weeknight treat. And weekend indulgence. And fancy dessert for a dinner party. It suits all occasions and delights truly everyone. Pinky promise. If you have friends who think veganism is all about carrot sticks and hummus, serve them this. And then have a good giggle when their jaw drops 🙂
