  3. Mix 3 tablespoons water into melted chocolate.
  4. Pour whipped cream over chocolate mixture and fold gently until incorporated.
  5. Pour mousse into six 4-ounce ramekins.
  6. Cover and chill until set (2+ hours). Keep chilled until time to serve.
  7. If desired, top with toffee, or fresh fruit and a dollop of whipped cream before serving.

Recipe Notes

Quick Tip:
Absolutely wait until the chocolate has cooled to lukewarm before adding water or folding in whipped cream. If the chocolate is too warm, it may seize the chocolate.
