Recipe By :
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:10

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 teaspoons gelatin powder, unsweetened
2 tablespoons cold water
4 tablespoons hot water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder -- I use Penzeys or other good quality cocoa
2 cups heavy cream -- chilled
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

In small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand 1 minute to soften. Add hot water; whisk until gelatin is completely dissolved and mixture is clear. Cool slightly.

Stir together sugar and cocoa in large bowl; add whipping cream and vanilla. Beat on medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bottom of bowl occasionally, until mixture is stiff. Pour in gelatin mixture; beat until well blended. Spoon into serving dishes.

Refrigerate about 30 minutes before serving.

"Sweetened heavy cream is flavored with cocoa, whipped with gelatin and chilled for a fast and delicious chocolate mousse."
