Fresh Fruit Platter with Chocolate Mousse Dip

If you ask me, those ultra-ripe summer fruits are best enjoyed in their most natural form. No need to bake or stew when they taste so good.

But, if you do want to frill up a platter or bowl of fresh fruits, there are many easy and delicious ways to do it. This chocolate mousse dip is one of my favorite ways to serve up a beautiful platter of fruit. Choose whichever fruits you like and get creative with the arrangement.
