    Title: Hippo Pot de Mousse
    Categories: Five, Desserts, Chocolate, Dairy, Nuts
    Yield: 6 Servings

    4 oz Semisweet chocolate
    2 oz Bittersweet chocolate
    2 c Heavy cream; well-chilled
    - whipping cream will do
    - nicely
    1 ts Almond extract

    Melt the chocolate together in the top of a double boiler.
    Be careful to do this slowly, so as not to burn the
    chocolate, and to keep all moisture away from the pot. Let
    the chocolate cool for five minutes.

    While the chocolate cools, whip the cream and almond
    extract together until very stiff. Gently fold the cooled
    chocolate into the whipped cream. There will be many
    flecks of chocolate in the mixture.

    If you're not going to eat it all yourself, spoon into six
    large wine glasses. Chill one hour.

    Yield: Serves one to six people.

    NOTES: Extremely quick and easy chocolate mousse -- This
    is an adaptation of a very easy chocolate mousse recipe
    from Sandra Boynton's hilarious book, "Chocolate, the
    Consuming Passion." It requires none of the laborious
    preparation that most French mousse recipes call for, and
    really optimizes the effort needed to consume the
    chocolate, which is, after all, what this is all about.

    If you're careful, you can also melt the chocolate in a
    microwave oven, in its wrapper. If you try this, be
    especially mindful of the semisweet chocolate, as the
    sugar therein caramelizes very quickly, leading to an
    awful mess (and ruined chocolate).
