Healthier Chocolate Mousse

Who doesnt love the whipped, light-as-air, though decadent and rich taste of chocolate mousse?  Non-chocolate lovers aside, this tends to be a universal crowd pleaser.  To me, chocolate mousse is romantic nights in.  Its sexy and sensual.  Wintery nights holed up by the fire.  An extravagent ending to your meal, simple in appearance, though one that wows in taste.  Behold, my version of chocolate mousse, though with no added refined sugar.

Super easy to make, tasting indulgent and delicious, though with something like half the usual amount of sugar in traditional chocolate mousse recipes.  A sweet treat worth getting psyched about, to be sure.

Easy and Healthier Chocolate Cheesecake

Happy New Year with this succulent sweet!  Chocolate cheesecake continues to rein over all the desserts I have sampled, making it a stedfast favorite.  I dont eat it often, for the caloric and sugar bomb it is, but man oh man, is this a tasty treat and one that when I do indulge, I revel over.

This particular version, while not sugar free, is considerably lower in sugar than usual cheesecake versions.  Though there is already sugar in the Oreos and bittersweet chocolate, there is no further added sugar in the cake (which most recipes do).  Though the crust contains wheat, you can easily make it without.

If you would like an equally enticing though gluten/grain free dessert, eliminate the crust.  I promise, it will be just as scrumptious without.

Enjoy this decadent, sinfully sweet dessert, without so much guilt.
