Chocolate Mousse Tart with Bourbon Caramel Sauce has a crunchy crust like a giant chocolate cookie, plus a light and airy filling.
To toast the pecans for the crust, spread them evenly on a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes, or until fragrant. Be careful not to burn!
*Any alcohol in this recipe is optional and simply adds more flavor. Add as little or as much as you prefer. You could substitute another liqueur such as a raspberry, orange, or coffee liqueur in the mousse or even the caramel.
**Be sure the egg whites are at room temperature before whipping; this allows them to better increase in volume.
