Chocolate Mousse

Our mom sent us this photo and recipe.  She said that it is a family recipe and is known to her as  Mimi’s recipe.  Mimi was her grandmother, our great-grandmother.  She claims it is very easy to make and is best served with whipped cream, raspberries, and lace cookies.  And, there you go.  Lace cookies.  Sounds great-grandmothery to me, and dates this recipe to about 1920, I’d say.  Enjoy!  We will have to dig out the recipe for lace cookies soon…
