Chocolate Brownie Mousse Cake

My husband's Aunt made a cake for us to eat while we were in Sequim.  She loves to bake and her stuff is delicious.  She made a Chocolate Brownie Mousse Cake and it didn't disappoint.  With a thick layer of brownie on the bottom, then chocolate mousse and whipped cream with chocolate, you can't really go wrong.  She doesn't remember where she first got the recipe, but is an old favorite of hers she makes when she has guests. 

Can you say wow? Umm, yes please!
