  1. Line bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan with ladyfingers. In the top of a double boiler over hot water, melt the chocolate chips, stirring frequently. When the chocolate has melted, mix in the 2 eggs thoroughly.
  2. In a large bowl, whip the cream until it is thick. In a separate large bowl, with a clean whisk, whip the whites until stiff but not blocky.
  3. Add 1/3 of the whipped egg whites to the melted chocolate and fold in. Quickly add this to remaining whites and fold in. Fold in the whipped cream until no streaks remain, being careful not to overmix.
  4. Pour mousse into the cake-lined pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.

This is a very easy and tastey chocolate mousse. I've made many chocolate mousses with the ladyfingers, but none were this easy. I could not find ladyfingers any stores, so instead I used th...

I am so happy to find this recipe. It is very similar to one I had years ago and cannot seem to find. I always added a bit of sugar to the whipped cream as one reviewer stated and also used fr...
