Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

Oh yeah. With one bite left of the cake on my plate I thought it might be better called Chocolate Overdose, but then a minute later I was eyeing the little bit that my son left on his plate, thinking I could go for more...

It was damn good. My husband said this was in his top three of desserts ever. (#1- Chocolate Intensity Cake, #2- Key Lime Pie)

This was no easy recipe but I loved it. The first layer needed to be baked and then cooled for an hour before you could start the second layer. The second and third layers were simple enough but involved a bit of time. And you can't do this recipe without a stand up mixer. There are egg whites to be whipped, and then heavy cream too- twice. My husband thought it took me "hours" to make but it was just lots of steps over a few hours.

When can we make this again?? I sent most of the leftovers home with our guests. We have two small pieces left for tomorrow. I can't wait.
