This one is hard to talk about…such mixed reviews. The recipe itself is fairly easy, just some mixing and chilling. I went ahead and made the cocoa crumbs that were suggested as a suitable topping for the mousse. Those also went together easily.
I made up a double recipe so I would have 8 individual cups for my tasters..and got these results:
- 2 really liked it…”We both really liked it with the cocoa crumbs…tasted tart and sweet and a little salty all at once.”
- 2 wanted to like it…”It had our palate curious, however it left us unfulfilled and not wanting another bite or to finish it”
- 2 didn’t like it…”wasn’t our favorite…tasted bitter to us”
- 2 didn’t get eaten…and I didn’t try it…not my type of dessert…although I did try the cocoa crumbs and those were good!
ALL of my tasters were glad for the opportunity as usual. It is a fun little game we play twice or more a month with the baking and tasting. We have had some great recipes and some great surprises but I would have to say this one wasn’t a winner in my book.
I do find it so interesting how different taste can be…the same recipe and 3 very different reactions from 6 people in 3 families…and the reaction was consistent in each family.
As always…thankful for the baking experience but onto the next one! 🙂
