This easy chocolate mousse recipe whips up in just 15 minutes! So airy & light, with a rich, deep chocolate flavor. Fancy, yet so quick & simple!
Place the chocolate chips, water, cocoa, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl, and microwave in short, 30-second bursts, stirring after each interval, until the mixture is melted and smooth (this can also be done over a double boiler).
Fold in the whipped cream and vanilla extract.
Divide the mixture evenly between 6 dessert glasses, cover, and chill in the refrigerator until set (about 1 hour).
Top with sweetened whipped cream and sprinkle with cocoa powder (optional).
