Chocolate Mousse Frosting

Chocolate Mousse Frosting

"'This smooth, fluffy frosting is a real treat for cake lovers on a restricted diet--plus everybody else,' shares Kim Marie Van Rheenen of Mendota, Illinois. 'Another way I like to serve it is layered in a parfait glass with cubed angel food cake or fresh fruit and topped with additional whipped topping. It makes a pretty dessert.'"
