I saw this recipe from Evil Shenanigans, included it in my Friday Five and thought I needed to try this one.  I knew my Mom would love it and my parents were coming over for dinner.  As I expand my cooking into baking, there is so much for me to learn and to understand the impact of ingredients.  I know cream cheese adds a richness to most dishes as well as a creaminess.  I have used it in my mac ‘n cheese, with some of my enchilada recipes but I do not think I have tried it for dessert (outside of cheesecakes).

Though the recipe looked very appealing, I was wondering if it would be as rich as I expect Chocolate Mousse to be.  I was not disappointed.  I added a couple more ounces of bittersweet chocolate than the recipe called for and I believe this created the right balance.  I also used raspberries because I prefer them to strawberries.

Out of respect for my fellow blogger, I am providing my pic but a link to her blog for the recipe.

No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse by Evil Shenanigans

My only changes were to use 5 oz of bittersweet chocolate and raspberries instead of strawberries.
