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. =^..^=

How to Make Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt chocolate with 1/4 cup heavy cream in a pan, then put into a larger-sized bowl. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together yolks, sugar and salt in another bowl. Set aside.
  3. Warm 3/4 cup of heavy cream in heavy skillet until bubbles just start to form around edge of pan.
  4. Temper egg yolks mixture into warm cream by slowly pouring the cream into egg yolks, gently stirring, then pouring the eggs & cream mixture back into the skillet.
  5. Return mixture to medium heat and stir continuously until custard just thickens to a slight boil & a wooden spoon dragged through the custard leaves a trail that stays in place.
  6. Pour into the chocolate and whisk together until smooth. Let chocolate mixture cool to room temperature.
  7. Whip the 2 cups of heavy cream & powdered sugar with a mixer until stiff peaks form.
  8. Gently fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture in 3 additions. Mix gently to a uniform consistency.
  9. Spoon into dessert dishes (or a pie shell). Chill until ready to serve.
