I had some heavy cream left over from making caramels and wanted to put it to good use.  Oh, this is DEFINITELY what I call, “good use”! 

It’s about as simple as it gets but oh so delicious.

Velvety Chocolate Mousse

1 cup Heavy Cream
3 oz Semisweet Chocolate, chopped
2 T Confectioners’ Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of salt

Heat 1/4 cup of the cream in a glass bowl in the microwave just until it simmers.  Add the chocolate and cover, allowing the chocolate to melt for 5 minutes.  Stir until blended.

In mixer bowl, beat the remaining cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt until soft peaks form.  Fold a large spoonful of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture.  Then, fold in the remaining whipped cream. 

Place in the refrigerator until chilled (1-2 hours). 

You can eat it just like this if you can’t wait 🙂

Or, you can pull out your piping bag and make it all fancy.  Either way, it tastes even better garnished with some chocolate shavings and a strawberry
(or 20).
