    Decadent and delicious and might just become your go-to dessert.  The recipe may seem complicated, but think of it this way.  You'll have four bowls for four components that you combine in the end.  Melted chocolate, sugar and yolks, meringue, and finally whipped cream.  Of course you'll want extra whipped cream for topping and plenty of shaved chocolate.

    • Total Time: 1 hour plus 2 hours and up to overnight for chilling
    • Yield: Enough mousse for one 9-inch 4-layer cake; serves 4 to 6 in dessert cups
