Surprise! Here is a delicious Layered Chocolate Mousse Cake you can prepare within minutes, leave to set in the fridge and get back to other work. Yes, we mean just minutes. Made with mouth-watering choices like peanut butter, cream and of course, chocolate and topped with crushed wafer cream biscuits. This mousse cake is a real melt-in-the-mouth treat and fortunately easy to make too. Just make sure you crush the biscuits by hand and not in a mixer because it needs to be coarse for the runaway success of this dessert.
