Chocolate Halva Mousse

Nothing makes me happier than combining two of my most favorite foods: chocolate mousse and halva. So I've done just that in this super quick and easy no-bake dessert. 

Prepare this early in the day or as you're starting meal prep for Shabbos and it will be ready to serve by dessert time.
