CHOCOLATE MOUSSE WITH BROWN SUGAR CREAM: Retro 1972 Ad with Recipe for National Mousse Day

Who doesn't love a good Chocolate Mousse? This being National Mousse Day, I thought I'd post this 1972 Ad with Recipe from C&H Sugar for Chocolate Mousse with Brown Sugar Cream. It's the Brown Sugar Cream that really makes this recipe. And, this recipe is still great 50 years later. I usually use a good quality chopped semi-sweet chocolate. The chocolate you choose is so important to taste. I also only use pure vanilla extract. I skip the almonds. No need.

Elegant French dessert,
Easy American recipe,
Secret Hawaiian Ingredient.
