This week’s Delectable Dessert is from La Mousse Desserts! This post is different because it’s not exactly a restaurant… I was on Yelp when I read all of these comments from reliable Yelpers that raved about La Mousse and their bars, cupcakes, and cheesecakes. I was intrigued by the popularity of this place, so I drove my sweet tooth down to La Grange to hopefully satisfy the sweet craving of the week.
I was a little bit confused when I first arrived at La Mousse Desserts. It’s location is not exactly in a cute or modern business center. In fact, it’s on a corner in between a small gym and an empty lot. I parked in the back and walked to the entrance. I met a kind woman inside who explained to me that La Mousse’s popular method of sale is through wholesale, but they did have retail. I asked what the most popular pastry was and she excitedly listed the delicious sounding desserts, but what sounded most scrumptious to me was the Chocolate Espresso Brownie Bar. I don’t know about you, but I just salivated at the thought of that.
The sweet lady who sold the bars to me informed me that it would take about 20 minutes for the bars to defrost, but I would also be able to freeze them and keep them for about a week or so. I drove back home and waited 2o minutes to try the bars. Longest 20 minutes ever. But the wait was worth it.
The chocolatey, espresso-y goodness! When I bit into the bar, it was so soft and I could smell the wonderful mixture of chocolate and espresso. There was a surprise inside – nuts! The nuts added a nice crunch and light taste to the rich chocolate and delicate espresso. There were a lot of bars in the box, but by the time I was done with them… let’s just say I should’ve bought more than one box. Once you start, you can’t stop. That, my friends, is true when it comes to these incredible bars from La Mousse Desserts
I don’t quite understand why the Yelp review was 4.5/5… My rating was a 5/5. I highly recommend that you, and your sweet tooth, go visit La Mousse Desserts. GO CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO BARS!
“The taste of sweet perfection,” indeed. Stop by next week to find a new treat to satisfy your sweet tooth!
