  • Whisk together egg yolks, 2 Tbsp sugar and ¾ cup heavy cream in medium saucepan over medium-low heat, approximately 3-4 minutes (be careful not to overcook; remove from heat when mixture sticks to back of spoon).
  • Add melted chocolate and vanilla. Strain and allow mixture to cool.
  • With electric mixer whisk remaining heavy cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Set aside and refrigerate 1 cup of whipped cream for mousse topping.
  • When chocolate mixture is completely cool, gently fold in non-topping whipped cream.
  • Carefully fill serving containers and refrigerate, a minimum of 3 hours.
  • Before serving, add small dollop of whipped cream and a grated chocolate!


Use a microplane to grate chocolate for an extra special garnish!
