German Chocolate Mousse

This German Chocolate Mousse is always a huge hit with family and friends. Suitable as a dessert for entertaining some guests but simple enough to make for a weeknight treat. The hard part is waiting for it to set in the fridge which can take a couple of hours at most. Enjoy!
