A surprisingly simple recipe for Chocolate Mousse
We are inspired by David Ogonowski's Chocolate Dough

TWD: Chocolate Truffle Tartlets


I come from a line of improvising women.  They are renegades.  As a result I am terrible at following recipes.  When I got up to make this involved creation today I wondered if I could really do it.  Suprisingly, the authors of this baking bible make it effortless.  From pages 382-383 of Baking with Julia we experimented with David Ogonowski's Chocolate Truffle Tartlets today. 


Was it a revelation or disgrace to my resolutions?  Just about out of the oven and 2 pieces are gone. Three of us are here, but I am the only one who can hold a fork. 

Perhaps I should not have decided not to make it gluten & dairy free. At any rate, this is what I did to make it so

The biscotti I used for the Truffle Filling was from our Capuccino Biscotti Mix.  Again in the truffle filling, I omitted the vanilla extract and just used 1/4 cup Orange Vanilla Sugar.
