Day 241: Easy Chocolate Mousse

Yield: 4 servings
Time (Start to Finish): 20 min

7 oz dark chocolate (guittard)
¼ cup boiling water
1 tsp sugar
½ cup heavy cream
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 egg

1. Melt the chocolate
2. Heat the water with the sugar until boiling
3. In a blender, add the chocolate, and the water and blend
4. When it is cool, add the cream, vanilla, cayenne and blend until smooth
5. Keep scraping the bowl or there may be chunks
6. Pour mixture into bowls of your choosing, I like ramekins, and chill

Rating: 4 strawberries
Notes: This recipe is fast. There are more complicated chocolate mousses, but I was in a rush to the airport to pick someone up, MAC!! I wanted to make a little snack pack (I am always hungry after a flight) and I thought chocolate mousse would be just the thing. It was! It is fluffy, and yummy. Make sure the chocolate is melted and blended or you will get chunks, which doesn’t taste good. Try it out, make it while cooking dinner and serve it to surprise your kids, or someone you love! It’s a good dinner party dessert too.
