If you prefer a mousse texture that is lighter, you can increase the liquid in this recipe.  I love this sort of dessert.  Yum!  The ease of preparation is a plus as well.


This is a very rich chocolate mousse that will surely satisfy even the deepest craving for chocolate.  It is thick and firm and yet creamy in the mouth. Delicious!  A fancy dessert to serve after a special meal.

7 oz sugar-free chocolate chips, OR this one (210 mL)  
70% Lindt chocolate (sweeten to taste with latter)
1/4 cup boiling water (60 mL)
1/2 cup heavy cream (125 mL)
1 pasturized egg*
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (2 mL)

In blender, blend chocolate chips and boiling water 30 seconds. 

Scrape sides and blend another 15 seconds until the chocolate is melted. 

Add heavy cream, egg and vanilla extract; blend until smooth.  Fill 4 pretty serving glasses.

Helpful Hint:  Instead of an egg you could use another 1/4 cup cream.  I would in that case use whipping cream instead of heavy cream everywhere.
