    megnbrycesmom's Note:

    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.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

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

      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.

      Yum! This is light, fluffy, and delicious! Based on other reviewers comments about it being too liquid, I left out the water altogether. I also melted the chips in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds or so until they were completely melted. I also substituted Bailey's Irish Cream for the Grand Marinier, we like both, but enjoy Bailey's more in mousse. This will definitely be made again. Made for ZWT6.

      The flavor of this was good. Very rich! However mine was more like a light pudding than a mousse. I whipped my cream until very very thick but once it folded in there was too much liquid for it I think. Thank you for a tasty treat though.
