Double Layer Chocolate Mousse Squares

Looking for a rich, creamy and mousse like dessert without the heavy calorie count, sugar and cream that comes along with it? Well, then this  dessert is for you!! This was a complete experiment of different ingredients, which consisted of throwing different healthy ingredients into the food processor, hoping for a creamy outcome and IT WORKED PERFECTLY! The bottom layer  is very chocolatey, rich and mousse-like, meanwhile the top is a soft homemade chocolate layer.. the two layers work so well together! I whipped up this dessert in the middle of midterm season for a close friend and happy to say she loved it!

I preferred to eat this dessert only lightly chilled, so then it was nice and mousse-like, however if you want it a little harder, you can easily eat it right when it comes out of the freezer. I recommend waiting 10-20 minutes for it to get a little cooler than room temperature before indulging, but try it out for yourself! 🙂
