Frozen Chocolate Mousse Hearts, Rose Syrup and Candied Pistachios is the ultimate in love desserts, if appropriate……..
This could be a story of love and devotion to my Valentine, but it’s not. It was decided a long time ago that I would just share my friends husbands because it is conceivably possible that I would just kill one of my own.
This sharing works quite well because I do not want a husband full time, but if the mood takes me, I head off to one of my friends houses to give their husbands a nice big cake, some biscuits ice cream or brownies. It is for the best, as with the amount of baking I do, a heart attack would be on the cards for anyone that lives with me.
Please don’t worry that Skater ( teenager) lives with me. He once told me, when he was very little, he wished for once he didn’t have to go to bed ‘with that smell in the house’. That smell was trays of brownies baking away, ready to be sold to cafes ( in order to be able to buy him all the toy cars he was so attached to!) Give this mousse a try, it is one of the things that I make that even Skater will eat. Keep a loaf in the freezer ready to be sliced at will.
