I’ve been making a plain vegan chocolate mousse pie for years, but today I decided to add a little something extra–orange liqueur–and it upped the decadence quotient considerably. If you want to turn this back into a “regular” chocolate mousse, just omit the liqueur and add a little extra sweetener. Or you can play with the flavor and add another type of liqueur.
