Watch out Peanut Butter! Pumpkin’s making moves on Chocolate!

I’ve decided not to write much on this mousse dessert I made. I’ll just say that I didn’t know that pumpkin and chocolate could go together so nicely. Try it out and let us know what you think? Better yet, what are your favorite foods to have with chocolate. Let us know!
