Plump, gorgeous jewels luxuriating in a creamy-dreamy dark chocolate mousse.

Swoon....

To make this No-Sugar-Added, simply sub the powdered sugar for Splenda Granular in the same measurement. SO GOOD!

Prep:

Ingredients

2 oz
unsweetened solid chocolate, chopped
2 Tbsp
heavy whipping cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
