This is mousse as mousse should be, with beaten egg whites. I would have preferred this with semi-sweet chocolate, but that's a minor criticism and no fault of the recipe. It turned out perfectly without the cream of tartar some reviewers say is a must, tho' adding it won't hurt anything. I didn't use the optional kirschwasser, but added vanilla instead which actually heightens chocolate flavor. I do have a favorite chocolate mousse recipe, however, where butter is melted along with the chocolate, and I prefer the added richness the butter lends. Still, this is a fine recipe. I piped it into chocolate shells and plated it with "Raspberry Sauce," also from this site. It was a dessert I'd be proud and confident to serve to anyone.
