Jacques's Chocolate Mousse
This is the easiest and quickest chocolate mousse you'll ever make and it is so yummy! It has a dark chocolate color with a bittersweet chocolate taste for those of you who love their chocolate mousse deeply rich. Great for any occasion or make it when you need something special but quick.
1 quart heavy cream
14 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
Whip the cream to soft peaks and add about 1/3 of the melted chocolate. Fold gently with a rubber spatula. Mix the remaining chocolate into the whipped cream. Mix only until combined, as you will deflate the cream if you overmix. Place the mousse in a large pastry bag and pipe into decorative serving cups.
Makes 6-8 servings.
