Last week I felt bad for not leaving you with a recipe, so this week I am giving you one of my post Halloween favorites. The recipe is a real treat because it only contains three ingredients. Actually, only two if you don’t count the garnish. And it comes along with one of my all time favorite William stories.
Back in 1993 when William was a mere 5 years old we were dining out in a fine Middlebury restaurant right there on the main drag. When it was time for dessert the waitress offered up what was on the menu. After describing a most decadent chocolate mousse William looked up at her and in his most serious voice announced, “I am not eating any moose”. It was a good laugh.
Here is a recipe inspired by that story. It’s perfect for using up extra Halloween candy. The caramel and vanilla nougat in the candy give the mousse some extra rich flavor. In 1995 Caitlin won her first recipe contest with a version of this recipe using regular milky ways. So either flavor works I just happen to prefer dark. How about you?
