Lighter Chocolate Mousse

Paula Deen's sons have done a wonderful job of taking her recipes and making them lighter & less fattening than the originals.

The Deen Bros. Lighter Chocolate Mousse

By Bobby and Jamie Deen

614 Fewer Calories
35g Less Fat

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

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.
