Recipe by helowy

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 226.79 g semi-sweet chocolate chips (or bits, or mini chips, etc)
  • 59.16 ml hot water
  • 4 eggs, beaten (I use the pasteurized ones since the eggs won't be cooked)
  • 29.58 ml Grand Marnier (to taste)
  • 473.19 ml 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.
