I have lost my reciepe for Chocolat Mousse Cake with chocolate wafer crust-topped with chocolate leaves-in a springform pan-pitured in Bon Appetit several years ago. HELP! I want to have it at a dinner party for someone special.

  1. Did you try They post most Bon Appetit recipes.

      1. If you're serious I will gladly go through my collection of past Bon Appetit. Do you have any idea what month and I'll check the copies I have...

        This is why I don't throw them out, I've found that not all of the recipes published are on their website...

        1. kbwahine, is it this recipe? It's from December 1980 Bon Appetit. My mom made this a couple of times and I remember it being so good.

              I have been looking for this recipe for YEARS! Thanks kbwahine for asking and thanks QB for having!

            2. If it is the one I am thinking of, it was QUITE a few years ago and was the cover (Dec? Nov?) shot. I think QueenB's post is that one. I have made it in the past and worked great. The leaf technique is ultra easy to do as well.

                Yes, the one I posted was a cover recipe. This recipe brings back childhood memories. I'm going to have to make it soon now and see if it's as good as I remember.

                  A little late for posting,but this was always my uncle's favorite dessert at Christmas time during family get togethers. I used holly leaves instead of lemon leaves in keeping with the season. Thanks for bringing back the memories!
