Usually when I say my grandmother, I mean my maternal one, but this is one of the few recipes I have from my paternal grandmother. She died when I was a toddler but I sure do remember this mousse! It really is quite simple to make and is delicious and elegant served with fresh berries of any sort.

Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (or bits, or mini chips, etc)
  • 4 tablespoons hot water
  • 4 eggs, beaten (I use the pasteurized ones since the eggs won't be cooked)
  • 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier (to taste)
  • 1 pint whipping cream, whipped very stiff with no sugar added

Directions

  1. Melt chocolate with hot water. To melt completely, it may be necessary to place the bowl in a pan of hot water.
  2. Cool and then add beaten eggs.
  3. Add Grand Marnier.
  4. Carefully fold in whipped cream.
  5. Chill and serve.
