How to Make Joy's Chocolate Mousse


  1. In a food processor or blender, add the first 3 ingredients and chop to a fine consistency.
  2. While grinding the above, on the stove make a simple syryp of the water and sugar by bringing the water and sugar to a boil.
  3. Add the simple syryp while still boiling hot to the chocolate mixture and stir it until the chocolate is melted. Then add the liquor and allow to cool.
  4. While the mixture is cooling, whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
  5. Fold the whipped cream into the completely cooled chocolate mixture leaving enough to garnish with a dollop of cream on the top of the mousse.
  6. ***I double this because there is never enough to serve everyone.
