How to Soften Cream Cheese

Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.

How to Make Chocolate Curls

Warm chocolate by microwaving it, unwrapped, on HIGH for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom to make long, delicate curls. Or to make shorter curls, use the same technique using the narrow side of the chocolate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was so easy and delicious. This recipe was so easy and delicious. I brought it to a Thanksgiving dinner. Most people liked it, but due to there being no room in the fridge or the freezer (not even the deep freezer), the mouse melted a lot and was very messy when cutting. I think it being melted also made taste sweeter than it was supposed to. Much too sweet for their taste. So I made it again today and used less Baker's chocolate and less sugar. I used oreo cookies to surround the mouse and crumbled some cookies to make a bottom crust. Also, I put the torte in the freezer so the mouse portion would become more firm and be easier to cut. Mission accomplished. I had two slices after dinner, it was excellent!

We all enjoyed it (I would have liked a stronger raspberry "punch"). Unlike some others here, I liked the results of the cookies. Kind of like a crumbled cookie crust, but easier and better looking. I also, liked that it was easy to transport in the pan to the gathering and easier to store in a crowded fridge because it was still protected by the pan. The final steps (turning it onto a platter and topping it) were easy to do right be serving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is great! This recipe is great! I make it for Christmas family gatherings and every year I add blueberries and take it to our 4th of July picnic. The blueberries added to the raspberries and whip cream give it a festive red white and blue theme and with choc curls to top it off you can't go wrong.

I made this recipe for my name-day and it came up awersome in spite of the many substitutes I made. First I didn't have enough chocolate pudding so I replaced half of it with vanilla pudding. I used overall only about 1.5 packs of pudding instead of 2. I also added some vanilla extract. Then, I used unsweetened chocolate w/ a little sugar. It came up perfect: my sister's roommate kept asking it if was bought. And it wasn't definitely too sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this yesterday for co-workers...it was a total hit! I made this yesterday for co-workers...it was a total hit! Relatively easy to make and totally yummy! The only difficult part was getting the vanilla wafers to stay standing up in the cake pan before pouring in the mousse. I had spread it around a section at a time until I worked my way around the pan, standing up a few cookies each time then spreading the mousse up to it. Outside of that, it was pretty easy. Definitely will make again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was pretty tasty but it wasn't anything special. This was pretty tasty but it wasn't anything special. It tasted like really good chocolate pudding, not like mousse. I was also disappointed that the cookies softened when the dessert was chilled so they had no crunch left when served. The dessert was very pretty, I topped it with semi-sweet chocolate chips and small strawberries rather than curls and raspberries. It was beautiful but not very impressive otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a crowd pleaser at a potluck. This was a crowd pleaser at a potluck. This recipe is fairly easy to prepare. It takes a bit of patience to get all the wafers to stand on the side of the pan in the plastic wrap. But once I poured in the pudding mixture it was easier to ensure all wafers were standing. I substitued chocolate chips for the chocolate curls. The taste was very smooth and rich. I will definately be making this one again.

I didn't follow the recipe down to the letter when it came to measurements and instead of the Bakers chocolate I used chocolate chips for the melted chocolate and mini ones for the topping instead of the curls. I also used strawberries instead of raspberries. I thought It was delicious and so did my family! And unlike those who were disappointed by the softness of the wafers, I enjoyed it.
