Chocolate Mousse

Servings: 6
This has got to be one of the easiest and most delicious desserts that exists. Many chocolate mousse recipes call for gelatin; not this one!

2 cups heavy whipping cream
3 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Heat 1/2 cup cream in saucepan over medium heat, until just about to boil.

Finely chop the chocolate and place in bowl.

Pour hot cream over chocolate, stir once, cover, and set aside.

With an electric mixer, whip remaining cream and sugar until soft peaks are formed.

Stir the chocolate mixture until melted completely, and well incorporated; then fold in the whipped cream.

Chill mousse for at least 2 hours. Serve mousse plain, or if desired, serve with whipped cream and fresh strawberries or raspberries.

Makes 6 servings.
