Mocha Tortoni Mousse

This dessert is quick and impressive but can be made ahead and frozen for up to two weeks! Almonds add a simple yet sophisticated touch to this dish, like dressing up a pair of jeans with a great pair of high heels.Created by: Trish Magwood, James Beard cookbook 'dish entertains' award winner and party dish TV host Trish Magwood
