Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream

Chocolate mousse is one of those things that looks super fancy but is incredibly easy to make. It doesn't take many ingredients either.


1 pint heavy whipping cream, well chilled
10 to 12 oz. bittersweet baking chocolate, broken into pieces


  1. In large bowl, beat whipping cream at medium speed just until stiff peaks form.
  2. In double boiler or in bowl set over saucepan, melt chocolate over simmering water. Pour melted chocolate into whipped cream; fold chocolate into cream (do not overmix; mixture can have a few streaks). Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

Whipped Cream:

1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring


  1. Place mixer bowl and whisk in freezer for at least 20 minutes to chill.
  2. Pour heavy whipping cream, sugar and vanilla into the cold bowl and whisk on high speed until medium to stiff peaks form, about 1 minute.
  3. Do not over beat.

Serve mousse in chilled glasses, topped with whipped cream.
