Holiday dessert are often baked pies, crisps, and cakes. Take a break from the cake with this amazingly luxurious dessert recipe--dark chocolate mousse made with olive oil and fruit liqueur.
I've selected a robustly fruity olive oil with a peppery finish to complement the depth and fruitiness of the dark chocolate. Lunigiana Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the perfect olive oil to make this dessert a hit, whether entertaining for the holidays or simply enjoying a lovely, homemamde dessert at home.
