I made this for a Christmas Eve dessert. It tasted great and was easy. I ended up serving in white and semi-sweet lacy chocolate cups with the mousse frozen (partly due to my lack of refrigerator space at this time of year). It was served to 11 people. Like one reviewer had warned, it only makes about 3 cups so is not a lot of mousse for 16 - possibly a typing error (should be about 6-8 servings I think). But, with the addition of some extra whipped cream on top and the chocolate bowls I found it to be adequate after a heavy meal. I had the sauce on the side mainly and used mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries) as not everyone in our family is nuts over raspberries. I also didn't have any orange liqueur (thought I did) so I substituted about a tablespoon of orange juice concentrate which turned out to be tasty to my 7 year old son. Straining the berries was a bit tricky/time consuming so added a little bit of liquid to the berries to make the processing a little easier (just had used a small Braun food processor attachment - perhaps a blender would have worked better in making the puree). Everyone liked it and I would make it again or use it as a cake filling.
