The Deen Bros. Lighter Chocolate Mousse

By Bobby and Jamie Deen

614 Fewer Calories
35g Less Fat

Ingredients:
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons water
2 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 cups frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed

Directions:
Place the chocolate chips and milk in a medium microwavable bowl and microwave on High, stirring at 30 second intervals, until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in the almond extract. Let cool completely.

Place the sugar, water, egg whites, and cream of tartar in the top of a double boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer until foamy, about 1 minute. Place the pan over simmering water (make sure the simmering water does not touch the bottom of the top pan) and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and continue beating until the mixture is cooled, 3 – 4 minutes longer.

Fold in the cooled melted chocolate and whipped topping. Spoon into goblets and refrigerate until well chilled, about 1 hour.

Test Kitchen Tip:
If you prefer, omit step 2 and use powdered egg whites or meringue powder instead of raw egg whites. Prepare according to package directions using 4 teaspoons egg white or meringue powder beaten with 1/4 cup warm water until stiff peaks form. You can find powdered egg whites or meringue powder in the baking section of most supermarkets, kitchen shops, or crafts stores.

I have everything except the almond extract, thinking it would still be good with vanilla extract instead.
