This recipe comes from the Living Tree Community Foods Website. I altered some of the ingredients to suit my tastes. I made this over the holidays and we really enjoyed it. I found it to be very mild in taste compared to other chocolate mousse I've tried. The unique thing about this mousse is that its made with Irish Moss, the sea veggie. It has to be rinsed 3 times to remove any debris, then soaked for 3 days in clean water. The water should be changed at least twice a day. Irish Moss works really good as a replacement for gelatin and sets up the mousse really fast. I didn't freeze mine, it certainly didn't need it. I found the Irish Moss at my local co-op. I halved the recipe and it made 4 good sized dishes of mousse which was enough for me and my DH. You can make the date paste by measuring the dates making sure you remove the pits. Then add some water to them and soak until the dates are softened then process them in a blender to make a smooth paste. NOTE: I didn't add the soaking time or freezing time to the recipe.
