Chocolate Mousse

by

Yield: Serves 5

There's just a whisper of Amaretto and a light sprinkling of slivered almonds. --Pittsfield Inn, Vermont

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 ounce Amaretto
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • Slivered almonds

Instructions:

Over a double boiler, melt chocolate. Whip heavy cream to medium-hard peaks with the vanilla, Amaretto, and sugar. Beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Slowly add whipped cream to chocolate, being careful not to make lumps (go slowly). Fold in egg whites. Place in dessert cups, top with slivered almonds, and serve well chilled.
