I made this tart for my father-in-law’s birthday. My “German papa” adores the mint chocolate of After Eight. It gave me such great joy, the word “yummy” printed with a large exclamation mark on his face after his first bite into this mousse au chocolate-mint-tart. 🙂

Is there another better way to express your love to your beloved ones than cooking or baking them something special with your love? What makes you happier than seeing their sunny smiles while tasting your little pieces of art?

This is why I love cooking (and baking)! 😀
