Chocolate Mousse

Makes: 4-6 Servings
8 oz. semi or bittersweet chocolate
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
5 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier or other liqueur
6 tablespoons sugar
¾ cup heavy whipping cream
Place the chocolate and butter in a double boiler (or bowl set over barely simmering water) and allow to melt, stirring until smooth.
Remove from heat and whisk the egg yolks into chocolate and butter — one at a time — and then whisk in liqueur.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy, gradually adding the sugar. Continue whipping until soft peaks form.
In a separate bowl, beat whipping cream to soft peaks.
Gently fold alternating batches of egg whites and whip cream into chocolate mixture being careful not to over process or “beat.” Transfer to serving glasses and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
