1 + 1/3 cups (320ml) heavy cream (>30% fat)

(optional) 1/2 tsp. vanilla

(optional) 1/4 tsp. salt

 

 

1. Heat 1/4 cup of the cream with the salt in the microwave until hot but not boiling, then add the chopped chocolate, cover and let sit for 5 minutes to melt the chocolate.

 

2. Place the remaining cream in a large bowl with the vanilla and freeze for 5 minutes while the chocolate is melting.

 

3. Mix the melted chocolate mixture together until smooth, then chill in the fridge while you whip the chilled vanilla cream to soft peaks.

 

4. Mix a spoonful or two of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture until well combined, then gently fold in half of the remaining whipped cream at a time until there are no more streaks of chocolate, being careful not to over-mix.

 

5. Spoon the mousse into serving bowls/glasses and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour (longer if you make a larger batch) before serving.

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
