You know what I love about this Dreamy Chocolate Mousse? I love that there are so many things I can do with it. I usually use it for a filling in cup cakes or a cake (like Moist Chocolate Cake), but it's also a great filling for Crepes, cream puffs, or just as a plain dessert. It's rich, creamy, chocolatey, and just plain good! The entire family loves it. You just can't go too wrong with chocolate. :)
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon cold water
2 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup (1/2 pt.) cold whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in small cup or bowl and let stand 1 minute to soften. Add boiling water to gelatin and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Let gelatin cool slightly. Stir together sugar and cocoa in medium bowl and add whipping cream and vanilla. Beat on medium speed of mixer, scraping bottom of bowl occasionally, until mixture is stiff. Pour in gelatin mixture and beat until well blended.
