Directions

Place chocolate in a large bowl set over a bain marie or in a double boiler at a low simmer. Stir chocolate until melted. Turn off the heat and let stand.

Beat the cream over ice until it forms soft peaks. Set aside and hold at room temperature. With a mixer, whip egg to soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar and continue whipping until firm.

Remove the chocolate from the bain marie and using a whisk, fold in the egg whites all at once. When the whites are almost completely incorporated, fold in the whipped cream. Cover the mousse and refrigerate for approximately 1 hour or until set. Serve in goblets topped with more whipped cream and shaved chocolate, if desired.

    I made this romamtic dinner for my husband. The dish I choose was a recipe I got from Giada DeLaurentiis Lasagna Rolls, with a great salad and fresh Italian bread, It was the Perfect dinner. Bobby Your Dark Chocolate Mousse recipe took it from a perfect dinner to a PERFECT ROMANTIC DINNER. With a Good bottle of WINE, both receipes, I started cooking. I found that both of the recipes are very easy to make and the flavor was AMOUR!!!! Thanks to the both of you for helping me w a PERFECT ROMATIC DINNERxoxo Oh I will be making it a lot and even for the kids or dinner paryies. Thanks again xoxoxo
