Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse

I love food I particularly like desserts as is evident by my expanding waistline.

I dislike desserts that are complicated preferring a simple yet delicious dessert. Something I can put together quickly without a whole lot of preparation.

If you like chocolate, cream and hazelnuts here's something just for you. I found this online and had to share with you.
