this is a quick dessert that can be made within 15-20 min.easy to make n serve with no extra decorations....this has a rich chocolate flavour .the flavour depends on the quality of the chocolate used...i used hershey's special dark chocolate.there r diff chocolates available.it is good to use a dark chocolate bar or semi sweet chocolate chips.don't use milk chocolate it just ruins ur mousse(doesn't tastes good).
1 cup chopped chocolate bar or semisweet chocolate of ur choice.
1/2 cup marshmallows
1 cup heavy whipping cream or 2 cups cool whip
1/4 stick butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
take a thick bottomed pan.put butter and marshmallows.add chopped chocolate.
let it melt on very low flame.
marshmallows r the last ones that melt.
remove and let it come to room temp .
now take whipping cream and vanilla in a bowl and beat the cream with an electric beater till stiff peaks form.
now fold in the chocolate mixture.mix it slowly.
when u r using coolwhip instead of whipping cream u can just fold in the melted chocolate.
serve with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with shaved chocolate.
if u don't want to top it with whipped cream u can just garnish with white or dark chocolate.
