     MOUSSE-CHOC-2 - Sinful and light mint chocolate mousse

     This concoction is a variation of another white chocolate
     mousse, which is a variation of a dark rum chocolate mousse.
     It was invented for a friend's birthday, which happens to be
     on St. Patrick's Day.  We were sitting around the day
     before, planning the celebration, and I offered to bring
     some white mousse.  Someone suggested it should be green, in
     honor of the occasion.  I came up with the perfect way to
     make green chocolate mousse....

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)
     4 oz      white chocolate
     3 Tbsp    green creme de menthe
     2         egg whites (at room temperature)
     1 cup     heavy cream

          (1)  Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler.  When
               melted, stir in the creme de menthe.  Let it cool
               a bit, and stir in 2 1/2 Tbsp of cream.  Let cool.

          (2)  Beat the egg whites until stiff, but not dry.
               Fold the chocolate-creme-cream mixture into the
               beaten egg whites.  The more carefully you fold,
               the lighter will be the mousse.

          (3)  Whip the remaining cream, until soft peaks form.
               Fold the egg whites-chocolate mixture into the
               whipped cream.  Again, the more air you preserve,
               the lighter the mousse.

          (4)  Spoon carefully into small bowls or cups, and
               chill for about two hours.

     Difficulty: moderate, depending on folding and whisking
     skills.  Time: 30 minutes.  Precision: approximate measure-
     ment OK.
