Avocado Chocolate Mousse Instructions
First, melt the chocolate using a double boiler or in the microwave. For a double boiler, do not let water get in the chocolate, and stir constantly until just melted. If using a microwave, heat the chocolate in a glass bowl on medium for one minute. Take out and stir. Heat for additional 20 intervals, taking it the bowl out to stir, until just melted.
Combine all the ingredients, including the melted chocolate in a mixer until well blended.
Scoop the mousse into 4-6 serving bowls and allow to thicken in the refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
For fun, garnish with mint leaves, raspberries, dark chocolate chips, a dusting of cacao powder, or a sprinkle of coconut shreds.
