Chocolate Mousse



4 ounces dark chocolate (80 percent cocoa preferred)
1 tablespoon sugar
3 egg yolks
5 egg whites


Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over a pan of simmering water on medium heat.

Remove the chocolate from the heat and add the sugar. Stir well and add the egg yolks, one at a time.

Beat the egg whites until stiff, glossy peaks are formed. Gently fold the whites into the chocolate mixture until well blended.

Pour the mousse into a serving bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.

Serves 6 (1 1/2 cup per person)
