Yes, I know this takes 3 cups of heavy cream but the taste is HEAVENLY! It also makes a delicious Chocolate Mousse Pie.

The prep time listed to the left includes cooking times. I couldn't figure out how to separate them since you're always doing something. =^..^=

  • 3Warm 3/4 cup of heavy cream in heavy skillet until bubbles just start to form around edge of pan.
