Chocolate Weave Dessert is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this without the piped chocolate decorations. The chocolate mousse is unbelievably delicious and that part is super easy to do. This recipe makes quite a bit, so I made only half as much and I am able to use it to fill a 9" round cake that is torted into 4 layers! I always get raves about this mousse. It is so good, that I tried it with lemon pudding, white chocolate, and lemon juice. It makes a fantastic lemon mousse too. For the holiday, I tried using butterscotch pudding and pumpkin eggnog instead of milk and used white and butterscotch chips along with some pumpkin spice, cinnamon, allspice, and a pinch of clove. For the liquid to melt the gelatin, I used rum (oh yum!... I love rum). This recipe makes a spendid pumpkin mousse too. Simple ... delicious ... rich .... smooth .... versitile. You just can't beat it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for my friend's bridal shower and everyone loved it!!!! The recipe involved many steps but it was definitely worth the effort. If you're making it in the summertime, make sure to have the cooling on, otherwise the chocolate stems won't turn out so well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wish you would clarify that the "candy melts" are NOT chocolate. Chocolate must be pre-crystallized. The candy melts are most likely made with vegetable oil, flavouring and possible some cocoa powder. They also do not taste like chocolate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I did not make the whole dessert. I just did the weaves. I used them to help decorate a chocolate cake. They were easy to make, fairly sturdy and added a great 3D effect to the cake.
