Dark Chocolate Mousse with Cocoa Nibs



1 1/3 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
6 ounces 56% bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup cocoa nibs

Garnish (optional)
Whipped cream
Cocoa nibs


1. Place 1/3 cup heavy cream, sugar and salt in a saucepan and place over medium heat. Continue heating until sugar is dissolved and cream comes to a boil. Pour cream over chopped chocolate. Allow to sit for 1 minute and whisk until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is fully emulsified. Add vegetable oil and vanilla extract and whisk until fully combined and creamy. Allow to cool for five minutes or until tepid.

2. Whip remaining heavy cream to soft peaks and keep chilled until chocolate mixture has cooled down. Fold 1/3 of heavy cream into chocolate mixture to lighten it. Gently fold in remaining whipped cream, being careful not to over-fold. Gently fold in cocoa nibs.

3. Spoon or pipe mousse into 4 glasses. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to set. Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cocoa nibs.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
