This is an intense, creamy, one-ingredient chocolate mousse adapted from a recipe by the molecular gastronomist Hervé This. The nearly instant dessert also happens to be vegan, and without the distraction of cream or eggs, a complex chocolate can shine. The mousse serves four and can be doubled. But even if you’re only serving two, don’t be tempted to halve it. And speaking of two, the mousse is a great choice for chocolate lovers on Valentine's Day or an at-home date night!
Create an ice bath in a large bowl using ice and a little cold water. Nestle a smaller bowl in the ice bath.
Place chocolate and 1 cup water in a small pot and heat over medium. Whisk until mixture is melted and smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes.
