Heart attack for dessert anyone?...


My mom got this amazing cook book for mother's day and there was a recipe in it for some chocolate mousse butter cream frosting. I knew I had to make it when I read that it had 6 sticks of butter in it. Yes, you heard me right...SIX sticks of butter. The recipe was a little time consuming but worth every one of the 5400 calories...yes, I did the math on that. Sorry mom, I probably shouldn't have added that little tidbit seeing as how I left the remainder of the cake at your house! the taste was rich but not overwhelming and seemed to melt in your mouth. Start your mouthwatering ladies...

I don't know if I'd be able to enjoy it if I knew how much time I'd be spending on the bike/tredmill after. Was it really good? I might have to get the recipe and try it on a Sunday night, you know, when the body doesn't see butter as butter, instead it's just like you're eating a nice bowl of vegetables. Crazy how Sundays work! :)

It did taste divine!! We had a little leftover (it makes a huge batch--if that makes anyone feel better), and it is wonderful on a graham cracker! I am happy to say I ate the last bite of cake yesterday. It kept well in the fridge and cut beautifully cold. We will be making this yummy confection again when all the fam visits. But first I better visit my cardiologist and see if there is any permant damage!!
