    Avocado chocolate mousse

    To be honest, when I first heard Avocado chocolate mousse, I was sceptical. I love, love, love chocolate, did I mention that I love chocolate?

The hour between getting home and until dinner is served is called the hell hour for a reason. Everyone, including myself, is…
