After trying unsuccessfully to fit the couch in my place I was left with no choice but to cry for help! Thankfully my aunt and uncle agreed to let me store it in their garage until I moved to my new place a month later. Let's just say it didn't fit in there either.
I promised them one of my baked goods as thank you and here I am nearly 5 months later finally making good on my promise! The Arpinars are huge chocolate fans. So much so that my uncle Muzo discovered his children had bought him chocolate for Christmas a few years back and decided to unwrap them and sneak a taste each day before Christmas, rewrap his gift and return it its place under the tree.
His plan was to replace the container of chocolates before Christmas rolled around, but alas the store was out, exposing his hilarious antics. I've been thinking about what kind of chocolate dessert to bake for awhile and finally put the plan into action.
Cake recipe adapted from Kevin and Amanda. I made her recipe originally here: Ultimate Chocolate Cake The mousse recipe I found on the food network. The mousse didn't get as thick or sweet as I wanted so I added the cornstarch and powdered sugar. It also made too much so I cut the recipe in half. Save adding the cornstarch til last to see if you need it. I love this cake because it has a great blend of flavors and is super delicious without being too rich.
