Suggestions for flourless chocolate cake or chocolate mousse?

I'm bringing a dessert to passover, and want to bring a knock-your-socks-off flourless chocolate cake or mousse. Any suggestion? Does Dorie Greenspan have a good recipe?
(Dairy is permitted at the passover, btw.)

Many thanks!

  1. This totally doesn't answer your question and I want to say in advance that I love flourless chocolate cake, but I was watching an old Julia and Jacques episode last night (souffles), and when Pepin mentioned flourless chocolate cake, Julia cut him off and interjected (paraphrasing here), "That has to be the dumbest name ever for a dish----who cares if it has flour in it?"

    What a treasure she was.

    1. Julia Child's chocolate mousse is a classic.

      1. I've been making these flourless chocolate cupcakes for a few years; they're divine. I don't use the frosting they suggest. I make mini ones and they're a little bite of heaven:

        Also, a flourless chocolate pear torte:

        And, here's a thread from last year with a similar request:

        1. I've been very happy with this flourless chocolate cake, which I make both on Passover and during the rest of the year: http://myglutenfreecookbook.blogspot....
          I always add a pinch of salt. On Passover, I don't really have lots of liqueurs around, so I've used a teaspoon or so of vanilla.

          1. Have I got a great blog post for you! Deb at Smitten Kitchen touched on this last year, and darn, if this isn't some inspiring reading:
