    Chris is looking for hers to post and here is mine. The original
    recipe was on a recipe card and rather cryptic so I hope it makes
    sense.

    Chocolate Mousse

    1 6 oz package semi sweet chocolate bits
    6 egg yolks, slightly beaten
    2T cognac
    6 egg whites, whipped to soft peaks
    dash salt


    Melt chocolate over hot water, add yolks, cognac and salt. Blend
    well.

    Pour chocolate mixture into a large bowl, lighten with some of the
    whipped whites then fold in the rest. Chill until ready to serve.

    Cognac is optional. Use Grand Marnier, a teaspoon of vanilla, or
    nothing.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Is that the recipe for one serving? :-)

    The recipe I use for chocolate mousse is somewhat like that, but it contains
    whipped cream as well, and it uses couverture chocolate rather than
    chocolate chips.

    The g/f and I keep it pretty simple:

    100g Lindt 85% dark chocolate
    2tbs butter
    1 cup cream
    1 egg - separated
    1 tsp vanilla
    1.5 tsp Kahlua or Baileys or whatever

    Whip cream and beat egg white
    Melt choc and butter, allow to cool until just warm
    Stir in yolk
    Fold chocolate, cream and egg whites together, then chill in fridge.

    My favorite is Chocolate Cream Cheese Mousse from that "all sugar,
    cream, etc." recipe book, which unfortunately I don't have with me.
    It has the cream cheese mixture, plus whipped cream, plus folded-in
    egg whites. I think it uses unsweetened chocolate, but I can't
    remember for sure.
