     MOUSSE-CHOC-3 - 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 Consum-
     ing Passion.  It requires none of the laborious preparation
     that most French mousse recipes call for, and really optim-
     izes the effort needed to consume the chocolate, which is,
     after all, what this is all about.

INGREDIENTS (Serves one to six people)
     4 oz      semisweet chocolate
     2 oz      bittersweet chocolate
     2 cups    heavy cream, well chilled. Whipping cream will do
     1 tsp     almond extract (optional)

          (1)  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.

          (2)  While the chocolate cools, whip the cream and
               almond extract together until very stiff.

          (3)  Gently fold the cooled chocolate into the whipped
               cream. There will be many flecks of chocolate in
               the mixture.

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

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

     Difficulty: easy to moderate.  Time: 20 minutes preparation,
     1 hour chilling.  Precision: measure the ingredients.
