Chocolate Mousse Dessert

Author/Submitted by: Jessica Chaiken <11JCHAIKEN@GALLUA.GALLAUDET.EDU>
Servings: 1
Categories: Chocolate / Desserts / Mousses

    -----Chocolate Mousse-----
6  Oz  Semisweet Chocolate Chips, or chunks
5  Tbl  Boiling Water
4    Eggs, separated
2  Tbl  Dark Rum, (or coffee or liquer
    -----Graham Cracker Crust-----
15    Graham Crackers
1  Tbl  Sugar
1/2  Tsp  Cinnamon
1/4  Cup  Butter, melted

Put the chocolate in a blender on high for 6 seconds (or so). Scrape the sides of the blender with a knife. Add the water and blend on high for 10 seconds. Then add the yolks and liquer/coffee and blend until smooth. Meanwhile, beat the egg ehites to stiffness. Fold the chocolate into the egg whites. Pour mousse into cups or into the graham crakcer crust. It makes about 4-6 servings. Break the crackers into a blender and blend into crumbs. Place the crumbs into a bowl. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon and add the butter and mix. Press into a pie plate and chill before adding filling. I cheated and bought a Keebler shell. I brushed it with egg white and baked it at 350 for 5 minutes. I guess you could do that with this crust, never tried. Your standard toll-house chocolate works fine for the mousse but the Ghirardelli chocolate made my knees weak! I also used anisette instead of rum. You should have seen my kitchen! Flour and chocolate EVERYWHERE! At least I got to lick the bowl
