Dreamy Chocolate Mousse

Mousse is a classic, creamy dessert made from a whipped mixture of egg and cream, in combination with pureed fruit or decadent chocolate. Whipping the egg whites adds lightness to the dessert, while the cream and yolk provide its richness. Serve chilled with sweetened whipped cream and garnish with fruit or fresh mint for color and a pop of flavor.
