Vegan Chocolate Mousse – Satsuma Designs

Valentine's Day rolled around and all of the sudden our Saturday night dinner plans in lieu of a Friday night fiesta seemed ill-advised. There's nothing like celebrating the big day a day late. Lesson learned.

So with not much time to plan a nice dinner a la familia. I opted for a rotisserie chicken, roasted potatoes, salad, green beans and carrots for the kids, which my valentine and I inevitably finish for the table.

Valentine's Day dessert was the only thing missing. With a bit of searching on the interwebs, I whipped up this vegan dark chocolate mousse that's a riff on a few standards with my secret ingredient, nutmeg.

As the name conveys, this is a dark chocolate lovers dream dessert - easy, tasty, and cheap to serve! If you're serving a variety of palates that may prefer a more mild chocolate flavor, please substitute regular cocoa powder for dark chocolate powder in this recipe. Either way, your valentine(s) will thank you!vegan dark chocolate mousse dessert
