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.

Light, fluffy chocolate. I followed the directions and had no trouble with it being watery. I did have to put in the microwave for 20 seconds to finish the melting - The rich chocolate taste and velvety texture was enjoyed by everyone in this family. Hard to believe it was so easy to make.
- 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
