Recipe: Chocolate Mousse for Valentine's Day

I was debating whether to post a recipe for Valentine's Day or for the Lunar New Year and I am going with Valentine's Day.  This chocolate mousse recipe is super easy and will impress any diehard chocolate lover.  I like to put it into individual ramekins so that you can keep little bites of chocolate in your fridge for the next month or so.  Enjoy!

3.5 oz of high quality dark chocolate 65% cacao or higher
8 oz heavy whipping cream
1 Tbl of good quality vanilla or brandy, cognac etc.  Whatever flavor you like in addition to chocolate

Whip the cream until very stiff
Melt the chocolate at a very low heat on the stove stir constantly
Gradually add the chocolate to the whipped cream and do not over stir a little cream streak or two will not hurt the taste.  Add your flavoring.  Pour into about 6 to 8 ramekins and cover with plastic and chill.

That's it!  Easiest dessert on the planet!
