Happy Sunday, guys! Did you know that today is World Vegan Day? Instead of the usual Sunday roundup of small, good things, I wanted to show my vegan friends out there some extra love by reposting one of my favorite dessert recipes. You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy this rich chocolate mousse, but it happens to be free of any milk, cream, butter, or eggs. Enjoy!
