Treat yourself this month-ending with two lightning-quick, magic-trick desserts where minimum fuss meets maximum taste.
The mousse is a light lunch go-to, a satisfying snack, and cracks that all-too-familiar chocolate craving, whilst the second is gorgeously rich and evokes a certain nostalgia with it`s childhood connotations.
