Another recipe from my favorite Australian Women's weekly that I tried recently..... I have previously posted two recipes from the same book, White Chocolate Caramel Slice and Banoffee Slice .... This Mocha Mousse Slice is an equally decadent one.... We enjoyed these rich and luscious little chocolate heavens.... They are real easy to make and a good choice for parties as they can be made a day before....
